It all started with the idea of bringing this event to the North State. LOTS of work and over 2 years in the making!!! But SO worth it walking around the Maker Faire yesterday! It made our team so happy to see people of all ages having FUN exploring such a wide variety of amazing activities!! It took an entire team of dedicated people to bring it all together! We made it happen!!! Thanks to all who supported the vision!

What is a Maker?

“Humans do two things that make us unique from all other animals. We use tools and tell stories. And when you make something, you’re doing both at once.”  -Adam Savage (MythBusters)
