Mini Maker Faire in Atlanta

Here is a message from the organizer of the Mini-Maker Faire in Atlanta.  It looks like it will be a really good event with lots of robots.



Hey everyone!


My name's David, I'm a student, pseudo-engineer, and soon to be educator out of Marietta, GA and I'm helping co-organize Atlanta's First Maker Faire on September 10th of this year.


Maker Faire is the world's largest DIY event - it's a blend of Art, Technology, Craft, and Science, combined with family-fun, participation, workshops, robots, and do-it-yourself ethics. It is the brainchild of Maker magazine, though the event in Atlanta is technically a "Mini" Maker Faire since it is being put together by a community of organizers rather than Make Magazine.


I'm sending you a message for two reasons. First, I'm spreading the word! The event is completely free to makers who want to show something and people who want to check it out. Secondly, we're still in our Call to Makers, so we're actively recruiting anyone out there with projects involving open-source code, robots, DIY'ers, solder fiends, hobbyists and enthusiasts, fixer-uppers, food makers, home scientists, and everyone in between and outside.


If you DIY we want you involved!


Here's a link to our Web site:


And if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact me! My email and phone are below - I look forward to hearing from everyone!


(So far we've got someone doing blacksmithing demos, a workshop from WonderRoot on how to create with repurposed materials, someone who has devised a way to create electronic sensors out of textiles, home automation geniuses, autonomous aircraft, and more robots than you can shake a stick at! Mark your calendars!)
