Check out the GALA tab for more information.
What is a Maker Faire: This event will be part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new. It is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “creative souls” will come to showcase what they have made and to share what they have learned. It is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker, and connect with people and projects in their local community.
So mark your calendars and invite all your friends to attend this exciting day of exploring, learning and making new things.
This event will be entertaining, educational, and inspiring!
