Thank you to all our Makers and Volunteers for coming out to Carl Schurz High School this Saturday, April 21st to launch the first annual Mini Maker Faire Chicago Northside! And thank you to everyone who attended, planted a flower, pet a chicken, blasted a nerd, shot a basketball, participated in a circus, picked a lock, built your own Chicago, built a blinkie, constructed a catapult, designed recycled jewelry, composed a song, learned about glass-blowing, created a T-shirt scarf, painted your own knife wound, braided Renaissance style hair, joined a hackerspace, worked a 3D printer, operated a robot, rode a DIY segway, completed an electrical circuit, chilled with the Wandering States, and MADE something!
Please check the website in the coming weeks for pictures, videos, and blogs about the event. Follow us on Facebook and check out posts on Twitter: #makerfairechicago #makerfairechicagonorthside #makerfaire.
P.S. If you missed the basketball shooters from FIRST Robotics, here they are, thanks to @pdp7
