Maker Faire 2012: From Robots to Bamboo Bikes
This past weekend we had a chance to spend the day at the 7th Annual Maker Faire event in San Mateo, CA. The event is put on by Make magazine, a magazine dedicated to the do-it-yourself community. The event was chock full of intventors and entrepreneurs who are using mostly reused resources to build everything from robots to bamboo bikes.
This year there was a Homegrown Village that featured an array of sustainability projects. We saw snails, compost, bees and even got to try some probiotic soda.
This is a great event for the whole family with lots of hands on projects for kids and robots of course. We even spotted Wall-E at one point!
Some tips for getting there: carpool or take public transportation, get there early and be prepared to wait in some lines as the parking lots fill up quickly!
