Maker Faire this weekend!

The Maker Faire is happening this weekend!  Don’t know what the Maker Faire is?  It’s the largest DIY (do-it-yourself) festival where you’ll see crafts, robots, art, and tinkered STUFF made by amateurs and professionals.  It’s the place were cool geeks get to show off their goods…there’s a life-size mouse-trap, giant cupcake cars, flaming robots, and a giant steel bird that moves by a bicycle crank.  You can learn how to print your own fabric, make your own soap and do needle-point.  And let’s not forget the science end…learn how to make model DNA or a 3-D with clay, build robots,  and make physics equipment like ping-pong ball cannons!  (Yes, just tell your parents that it’s for science.)
