It feels silly to try and put our experience into words. We didn't take too many pictures because we didn't want to miss out on seeing everything, but we're already planning for next year's adventure.
What inspired us the most?
There were a lot of really cool things, but we were really excited when we saw recycled crafts and simple robots that anyone can make. The Brooklyn Robot Foundry had a hugging robot made by 5th graders out of recycled materials, and Crafts for Learning had an awesome cardboard-and-duct-tape hydraulic arm. Crafts for Learning also had a book on robotics for kids, and you know we snagged that immediately!
We're brimming over with ideas now, and we can't wait to share them with you. All I can tell you is last night, we picked up some materials at the dollar store, Radio Shack and Home Depot... Curious?
Have you ever been to a Maker Faire? What did you enjoy the most?
