I thought some of you might be interested in Maker Faire Vancouver. It's on the weekend of 23/24 June at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds in Vancouver.
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, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect, and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.
