Have you all heard about the Maker Faire? It’s the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning!
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow the community.
On Sunday, June 8th, 2014 at 11am to 7 pm, bring your whole family to the fun, family-friendly inaugural DC Mini Maker Faire event at the Yards Park and IdeaSpace DC (at 355 Water Street SE, Washington DC)! Local Do-It-Yourself (DIY) innovation and thousands of attendees of all ages are invited to interact and make with lasers, 3D printers, robots, craft activities and more!
To celebrate makers of all ages, LEGO® Juniors will host a Play, Make & Share experience with thousands of LEGO bricks and invites the community to come play and make with them!
In addition to the LEGO experience, there will be individual DC makers, local Maker and Hacker spaces, museums, DC Public Library, federal and local government, non-profits and academic institutions like Georgetown University to be featured at this event.
This event is free and open to the public!For a list of other exhibitors and activities at this event, please visit: MakerFaireDC/CallForMakers
