Orlando will be getting it’s own Mini Maker Faire taking place at the Orlando Science Center on October 5th.
Orlando Mini Maker Faire is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s an event where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
The individuals behind these exhibits are known as “Makers” and they range from tech-enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. Makers are of all ages and come from many backgrounds. They all share a love for innovation and creativity, as well as an educational spirit to inspire and encourage new Makers. The 2013 Orlando Mini Maker Faire at the Orlando Science Center features displays and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
