Final preparations are underway for North Carolina’s third annual Mini Maker Faire to be held on Saturday, June 16 in the Kerr Scott building on the NC Fairgrounds.
The 2012 list of makers participating is full of exciting and creative projects from Tesla coils and solar power inventions to the return of Craig Trader’s Chaos Machine.
Talented maker musicians are schedule throughout the day including a robotic Lego band and crowd favorites Subscape Annex and Ann Feld.
Tentatively scheduled for noon is a launch of a high altitude weather balloon by Citizen Scientist group NC Near Space and as if that isn’t enough volunteers will be on hand to teach soldering fundamentals to budding electronics enthusiasts.
Tickets are on sale now (pre-orders strongly recommended) for $10 (adult) and $5 (youth/student).
