It’s a weekend to celebrate arts, crafts, engineering and technology — Maker Faire Detroit is here!
With more than 400 makers, this two-day festival has a little bit of everything for the whole family to enjoy.
Attention all tinkerers, inventors, hackers and do-it-yourselfers — in short, “Makers.” The call for entries is now open for this summer’s Maker Faire Detroit 2013 at The Henry Ford in Dearborn.
Did you miss it the first time? Don’t fret. The popular Maker Faire Detroit will return to The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn from July 27-28, 2013.
Maker Faire Detroit offers everything from robots, flame shooters, animatronics, solar-powered mechanical sculptures, fashionable finds, to musical performances, fire arts and hands-on activities.
On Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29, more than 400 makers will bring their MacGyver-style do-it-yourself wonders to the home of innovation, The Henry Ford, for Maker Faire Detroit 2012, the Midwest’s largest two-day festival dedicated to those that build, tinker and create.
Have you ever wanted to build something, but didn’t have the tools to make it? TechShop is the place for you.
“Makers” use technology such as 3D printers and easy-to-use programming tools to create devices that send Twitter messages when a plant needs to be watered, or a harp made of lasers or even 3D-printed playable electric guitars.
Ever wonder how wheat was thrashed and prepared for processing into flour for bread and pastries in the early part of the 20th century?
