This Weekend, Empire State Maker Faire! An Interactive Showcase of DIY Creativity and Tech Ingenuity
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday and Saturday, October 16-17, the first Empire State Maker Faire will share the creative work and technical know-how of makers of all ages who share a passion for making just about anything they can imagine. This event is free and open to the public. During the time of a pandemic, all sessions will be online. There is still a focus on maintaining the hands-on, DIY nature of Maker Faire through demonstrations, performances, and how-to workshops. You can experience everything from 3D printed chocolate, cosplay, and robots to haunted houses, cardboard creations, and unusual board games. Most importantly, you can meet and learn from hundreds of different makers.
"Despite the pandemic, and perhaps even because of it, there are more people making things and applying what they learn to new projects," said Dale Dougherty, President of Make: Community and the creator of Maker Faire. "I'm excited that Empire State Maker Faire offers a new way to bring the spirit of Maker Faire to more people and yet continues to build on our fifteen years of tradition."
