Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire
The Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire will be returning this September 13th and 14th to the Albuquerque Balloon Museum with a two-day, family-friendly adventure in creativity, invention, resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. With hands-on experiences for all ages, its part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new. It is a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, poets, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are people who embrace the do-it-yourself spirit and are of all ages and backgrounds. Makers create, build, invent, re-purpose, hack, alter, or otherwise change and improve the world around them through thinking and creativity. Makers use circuit boards, wood, clay, fabric, LEDs, metal, plastic, robotics, yarn, sewing machines, computers, hot glue guns, paint, batteries, fire, electricity, recyclables – just about anything you can imagine. The aim of the Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect, and grow this community.
