JT & I checked out the World Maker Fair at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY. It's a festival with a show-and-tell vibe that focuses on technology, invention and creativity. It's a place where participation is encouraged and it is a really great event for both kids and adults!
We made rocket ship badges at the RadioShack "Learn to Solder" tent.
Meet KitRex... a 3D paper velociraptor kit you build at home. They offer smaller kits in a variety of colors.
This was one of the larger 3D printers I saw at the event... but there was a full size car at the event that was made entirely by a 3D printer.
Life size Mouse Trap!
This was a fun one... you make your badge with your initials and then you have to answer questions correctly in order to activate different colors in the led light.
There is really so much more to see and do at Maker Faire, these are just some of the highlights of this great event!
