EMP Museum in partnership with Penny U are hosting the a two-day Seattle Mini Maker Faire this weekend.
I was able to drop in for a few and check out all the different booths. They have over 60 different makers, or as I like to call them “creative smartypants’,” who had their work on interactive displays. People of every age got to sit down and explore their own creative prowess while playing in the world of someone’s already actualized imagination. There were things to play around and test from a DIY supercar, a LIFESUIT robotic exoskeleton that assists the mobility impaired, to biodomes, balloon satellites, and tabletop filmmaking kits. The best part about the faire was how fostered the children were. From participating in the presenting itself to exploring and visualizing what things they wanted to invent for themselves.
Check out a few images:
This faire will be open until today, Sunday, March 23, 2014, until 5pm. Get in on this while you still can!
