2014 is Time to Reinvent

We wanted to let everyone know that we are taking this year off from Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire to retool the Faire and bring it back in a bigger and better format next year – with more partners, new location and a greater variety of projects.

Robots and Monsters

It has been a real pleasure meeting and working with all of the creative makers and Faire planners who were a part of Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire over the last three years.  Not to mention the wonderful visitors who explored new ideas, materials and tools, and made amazing things, each year at the Faire.

There are lots of other opportunities for adult and kid makers at the Children’s Museum this summer, including being a Guest Maker in MAKESHOP, attending on- and off-site workshops, playtesting in MAKESHOP, attending Camp MAKESHOP in August and more. For more details visit www.makeshoppgh.org. If you are interested in participating in some way with next year’s Maker Faire, please email hi@pittsburghkids.org.

Maker Faire Detroit Shoutouts

Maker Faire Detroit was held this past weekend at the Henry Ford Museum and a contingent of Pittsburgh makers traveled north to represent our region at one of the largest Faires in the country.  We’re proud to share some of the shout-outs already online lauding Pittsburgh’s makers in Detroit this year!
