On one level, I'm a little bummed about this--cause, our D.Y.I. scene here is so awesome and I wish/think we could support a bigger event here.
On the other hand, let's work with what we got and start small and great.
Sunday, October 23, The Pittsburgh Children's Museum will host the First Pittsburgh Maker Faire!
Organized by the staff of MAKE magazine, makezine.com and craftzine.com, Maker Faire is a newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft and engineering plus music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers – anyone who is embracing the DIY spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.
We encourage you to join the fun and enter a project to exhibit.
