Mini Maker Faire returning to Farm Council Grounds
Local and regional "makers" will show off their creations at the fourth Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire, held 10 am to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds (aka “Saline Fairgrounds”) 10 minutes south of Ann Arbor.
Past Faires have featured silkscreening, vortex cannon, robots, amateur radio, sustainable technology, learn to solder, DIY satellite, computerized jukebox, machine vision, giant Simon game, make your own comics, and more, all with an emphasis on “do it yourself”.
The mission of the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire is to present interesting or unique exhibits, individuals, and demonstrations in DIY science, technology, engineering, and art that excite, motivate, and educate. The emphasis is on cool things, skills, and knowledge. As a shorthand, the exhibits are the kind of thing you’d see in Make Magazine. The Faire is organized by a2geeks, a new Ann Arbor area foundation promoting the informal technology culture, and is organized in cooperation with Maker Faire.
