Maker Faire

There will be a local Maker Faire at the Denver Museum of Natural History June 12-14th so make plans to go there. I'll be there along with lots of other Mad Scientists showing off our wares and projects. This is the 10th anniversary of the first Maker Faire held in San Jose about which an attendee had this to say:

“I remember walking up to the gate with my son Kindy, then 11,” he says. “We stopped in our tracks at the sound of a very loud, fiery explosion coming from somewhere near the entrance. Kindy looked at the tall flames rising up, looked back at me, and started running towards their source. He was sucked in before we even got inside!
Nothing like a demonstration of blowing something up to get a kid interested in going to engineering school.
