Calling all Makers!

Maker Faire Bay Area 2016

The 11th annual Maker Faire Bay Area is coming up in about one month! Hard to believe it has already been over a decade.

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

You'll definitely want to check out this event if you enjoy making things, seeing new innovations, tinkering things, and just having fun! :D

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It’s a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It’s typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.

Spread the word! Here's just a sampling of different fliers and promo materials I posted at cafes (Thirst Tea, Quickly, On Fourth Cafe, and more!), my workplace, local libraries, and universities nearby (SJSU and DeAnza college).
