SGVHAK, Repair Cafe, and the JPL Open Source Rover will have collocated booths at the DTLA Mini Maker Faire.

It is shaping to be a huge event with nearly a hundred makers--many of them from the San Gabriel Valley--who will be exhibiting, doing workshops, giving talks, and even performing.
There will be exhibits inside the beautiful Central Library and outside in Maguire Garden.

Please RSVP on Eventbritefor free tickets, whether you're coming as an attendee or to help us at our booth. They had a group registration option, so I made an SGVHAK group.

What to expect:

* JPL Open Source Rover booth will feature SGVHAK Rover, JPL Open Source Rover, Santa Susana HS's rover, and Roger Cheng's Sawppy.

Additionally, there will be talks on the JPL Open Source Rover and Sawppy from 2:30 to 3:30pm at the KLOS's Children's Theater (Children's Literature, 2nd floor) .

Also, JPL will have STEM activities and swag, and IPAC has a 4-minute Trappist-1 VR experience on the Oculus Rift. There will be a demonstration of the science behind the OCO-2 mission.
