I spent the afternoon at the Maker Faire on the grounds of the New York Hall of Science in Queens on Saturday. It had a great vibe, sort of a mix of a county fair, art market, Renn Fest, Comic Con, inventor fair, and Martha Stewart all rolled up into to one event. I saw some some amazing examples of “makers.” Beautiful handmade crafts, puppets made from garbage, things to do with a bruken computer, robots made from boxes and plastic bottles, there were so many fun, creative, and thought-provoking things to do, see, and learn at the Faire. I learned a few things myself, like how to knit a baby cap and how to lead a plastic-free life. It’s a great event for kids!
Go see the Maker Faire for yourself on Sunday.
