We went to a Maker Faire in Vermont this summer and we are hooked! My son got to make a flashlight with a copper pipe, tape, batteries, LED bulb and he even soldered it all together!

What is a Maker Faire?
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
Don’t miss Lauren- the 10 year old who makes 3-D Printed Maker Coins. Meet 10-year-old returning maker Lauren Violette and make a fun maker crab coin or pin using her 3-D printer. She will also have a fun DIY project that attendees can create with just a few materials.
