Our list of Makers coming to the 2017 Maker Faire is growing. See the up-to-date list of Makers under the Maker tab or click here for the Maker profiles.
Returning to the Faire this year is one of our favorite Makers, Allie Weber. Allie is now 11 years old, and this will be her THIRD! Maker Faire. Each year, Allie’s accomplishments grow and show Making is a frame of mind rather than an adult thing.
Allie will be showing some of her latest inventions including her Frost Stopper- Frost Bite warning system, the Got Your Back Binder Strap and maybe a peek at her secret project to make long hospital stays more fun for kids and teens. Catch up with Allie at her YouTube channel, Tech-nic-Allie Speaking.
The Third Omaha Mini Maker Faire will be on Saturday, April 15 hosted at Omaha’s Do Space (7205 Dodge Street, Omaha). Do Space and Metro Community College, in partnership with Omaha Maker Group, are sponsoring this year. Doors open to the public at 9AM and the Faire runs until 4PM.
We are still looking for passionate and creative individuals making great inventions, projects and stuff, to show, tell and teach visitors. If you have a hobby or like making creations in the areas of technology, art, craft, or things for yourself, register to be part of the Omaha Mini Maker Faire at the link. Registration has been extended until April 8 but don’t wait.
