The Science Museum of Western Virginia and the Virginia Society for Technology in Education are partnering to bring the 3rd annual Roanoke Mini Maker Faire to the Roanoke Valley. This Maker Faire features K-12 makers from Roanoke and surrounding areas.
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events. Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Glimpse the future and get inspired!
