One of my favorite events, the World Maker Faire, will be back in NYC in just two weeks! A weekend devoted to invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and celebration of the Maker Movement , the World Maker Faire New York has been an incredible event to enjoy with my girls as we meet inventors, see cool gadgets, participate in arts and crafts, check out 3D printing, and more! Held on Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2 at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York, the event is quite an impressive program for Making enthusiasts of all ages.
