It’s time to get ready for the 4th annual Cedar Rapids Mini Maker Faire, May 2, 2015, at the Science Center’s new location, 705 North Center Point Road, Hiawatha. Last year we had over 1,100 visitors with 50 indoor and outdoor exhibitors.
Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.
What are the characteristics we are looking for as Makers?
A do-it-yourself project that is unique, inspiring, engaging, and interactive with observers. It tells a story. It might be a piece of art… or a tool or project that does something different. It should be something that hasn’t been seen before, or at least by few people.
Maker Faire events across the United States celebrate a DIY/homegrown invention movement. Whether it’s a home-built robot, a video game, a miniature race car, a novel or hand-made musical instrument, art, a sustainable micro garden or wearable electronics, Maker Faire showcases all that is creative and innovative in our community.
We need you and your creative, innovative projects to be a part of this exciting event!
