Build a paper rocket, learn to knit, how to paint (lessons available for children), how to solder; build a manga paper doll, a robot out of K’nex , or see how to convert an old typewriter into a USB keyboard for your computer or tablet. In other words, be inspired by the nearly 100 makers who are showing off their talents and imagination on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the first (but hopefully not last) Lehigh Valley Mini Maker Faire at the SteelStacks, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem. This free family friendly event promises something for all ages and all abilities and interests. 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
Maker Faire is 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 this community.
