Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire open to all, this weekend at the Public Museum

August 16, 2018

Grand Rapids is a creative community, and that talent will be on display this weekend at the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire.

GRCC associate professor Moss Ingram has been involved with planning the event – billed as the “Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.” It is planned for the Grand Rapids Public Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., August 18 and 19.

The family-friendly event attracts makers as young as 10 though the mid-80s, showcasing robotics, drones, sewing and jewelry work, 3D printing, virtual reality, glass blowing, specialty foods and drinks, and more.

Artisans will show off their completed and in-progress work and share their experiences with people interested in learning how to tinker and invent, hoping to entertain and inspire as well as grow the maker community.

Additional details and tickets are available at grandrapids.makerfaire.com.
