We are a grassroots group of Makers interested in organizing Maker events and supporting the Maker community of Dayton, Ohio. We are the organizers of the Dayton Mini Maker Faire and other Maker community events in the Dayton, Ohio region. But, why? Well, getting Makers together and showing off what they do is fun! It gives everyone a chance to see the awesome things being created in Dayton everyday. Plus, when you get a lot of ideas from different places together, it grows more ideas. To paraphrase von Karman a bit "Makers create the world that has never been"; getting the Maker community together is like getting a preview of the future.
