What Do You Mean, a “Maker Faire”?

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

There is a whole WORLD of videos on YouTube on various aspects of Maker Faire — below are two views on what Maker Faire is, why it’s such a special event — and why we’re making one in Kingsport!
