Amazing group of Makers at the 2015 faire!

Looking down through the list of this year’s Makers has us organizers really excited! From 3D printers, to FIRST Robotics teams, to skill sharing, to the A2Hands on Museum’s various demos and projects, you are sure to find something that captivates you, teaches you something or impresses you with the amount of knowledge that is being nourished and shared in our region. This includes our youth makers as well! Here is a sneak preview—-

A2 STEAM’s 6th grade percussion group set to task on rebuilding a set of orchestra bells that were in horrible disrepair. They will be on hand to show us just how they tackled this project.

All Hands Active will be at the faire once again along with Maker Works, the Lansing Maker Network and the Grange Junior Makers. Year after year these groups bring something fresh and new with them to share. We are grateful for their continued support!

And we also have a bunch of new Makers joining us!

e-NABLE is an extensive network of makers with 3D printers who build and then assemble devices for those born without fingers. They will be here printing parts and you can learn how to assemble some of the devices yourself!

Coming in from Toledo is the University of Toledo’s Maker Society. They are a student organization aimed at providing tools, from 3D printers to hand tools to CNC machines, for all students to use no matter what discipline they may be studying.

Another great addition to this year’s faire is Ann Arbor’s favorite creative space for kids (and adults!): the SCRAP BOX! They will have some of the amazing and sometimes strange recycled materials they tend to have in stock.

Check back soon to learn more about this year’s Makers!
