Atlanta Mini Maker Faire

Although this is not an official Science Tavern meetup, it should be a treat for many of our members.  Maker Faire is a celebration of all things do-it-yourself - from robotics and electronics to arts and crafts. This is a family-friendly event that inspires creativity, promotes invention and brings makers together. It is free and open to the public and hosted on the Georgia Tech campus.
