Next weekend, November 8th, Come to The Lab Miami for the 2nd annual Miami Mini Maker Faire! This fair has grown so much since last year. With over 90 exhibitors coming to show off, we’ve had to close off NW 26th Street between 3rd and 5th Avenues! Come out to meet local makers and see their robotics, DIY science and technology, hardware hacking, 3D printing, art and crafts, urban farming and sustainability, educational workshops, and much more.

Here are just a few of the cool things you can expect to see when you attend.
