This year’s Maker Faire exhibits ranged from woodcrafters and mapmakers to high-tech developers and NASA specialists. Young Makers from all walks of life interacted with 3-D printers, circuit boards, robots, virtual reality, woodworking, and wide variety of arts and crafts. KID Museum ran workshops on soldering, DIY Pachinko/woodshop, coding, wind tubes, hula-hoop weaving, and Pi-Bots. Participants were encouraged to interact and play with the exhibits and, more often than not, kids were allowed to take home what they created!
