Are you a maker? Do you know a maker? Then don't miss Gainesville's very own Mini Maker Faire on February 24 from 12-6pm. Not so sure? We think there's a maker in everyone, even if you don't recognize it yet. Check out this article by Makezine to learn more about what makes a maker (no pun intended).
Self-proclaimed maker or not, don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with the maker community. The Maker Faire website says: "Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects. We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Glimpse the future and get inspired!"
You may even wish to demonstrate your hacking/making/crafting skills at Maker Faire. Good news, the call for makers is still open! There is no cost to be an exhibitor, unless you are plan on selling a product at the Maker Faire (then additional fees apply). Once you submit your complete application, the team will review in one to two weeks. But the clock is ticking. Please Note the Call for Makers has been EXTENDED to February 9th, 2018.
Alachua County Library District will have a booth at Maker Faire demonstrating what we do in our many MAKERspaces across the county. Prepare to see our Lulzbot 3D printer, "Flap Jackson" the Pancakebot, and many other exciting gizmos and gadgets that we have available.
So come see us and the other magnificent makers at our very own Mini Maker Faire!
