Mini Maker Faire Comes to Lynchburg
(Lynchburg) On Sunday, March 26th from 12:00pm to 4:30pm, Vector Space will present the Lynchburg Mini Maker Faire, the first maker faire in our area in partnership with the national movement started by and in collaboration with Make: magazine from Maker Media. This event will take place on the campus of Randolph College.
In the words of Maker Media, a Maker Faire is, “Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new. Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these ‘makers’ come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.”
Maker Faire launched its first event in 2006 and is focused on showcasing makers across the spectrums involving technology, art, craft, science and engineering. The Lynchburg Mini Maker Faire encourages makers to come out of their workspaces and garages to demonstrate their talents for the local community, while inspiring others to find out how things are made and possibly even pick up a new hobby or interest in a skill.
We are proud to be partnering with Randolph College by making Lynchburg Mini Maker Faire a part of their annual Science Festival. Come out and enjoy hands-on activities, amazing exhibits, locally made products for sale, food trucks, a group build project and more. This event is free and family friendly as there will be activities for those ages four and up.
We would like to thank our partners and sponsors Make:, Vector Space, Randolph College, clutch Magazine and Opportunity Lynchburg. For more information please visit www.lynchburgmakerfaire.com or call (804)387-1519 or email email@example.com
