World Maker Faire New York

Life Size Mousetrap at World Maker Faire NY

World Maker Faire New York is taking place this weekend and it will be awesome:

“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.”

The Faire is jam-packed with so much cool stuff you’ll need the whole weekend to take in all of the exhibits, performances, and attractions.

Get Your Useless Kits at World Maker Faire

One reason why us folks at The Frivolous Engineering Company think Maker Faire is awesome:  our Useless Machine Kit is available for purchase at the Maker Shed!

If you’re unable to attend the faire, you can always get one from the Shed’s online store or directly from us.

Thanks go out to Matt Richardson, who was kind enough to take the above photo.
