This weekend, thousands of folks will head to the PNE Forum in Vancouver to experience the 5th annual Vancouver Mini Maker Faire. With well over a hundred different makers and groups this year, there is literally something for everyone of all ages. It’s a very family friendly event. There is even a family ticket option.
Once again, I’ll be there along with my merry band of 3D printing enthusiasts from 3D604.org showcasing the latest 3D printers and cool projects made via our robots that draw with melted plastic (and other materials).
On the Saturday during Maker Faire, I’ll be giving a presentation on the main stage where I’ll outline the current state of 3D printing and on Sunday, I’m moderating a panel discussing about the challenges of setting up a makerspace.
On Wednesday, June 3rd, I’ll be on Global’s Morning News broadcast starting around 7am where I’ll 3D scan and print the show hosts over the course of the morning. Tune in for a special discount code for your MakerFaire tickets too!
MakerFaire runs Saturday, June 6th and Sunday, June 7th from 10am to 6pm. Tickets at makerfaire.ca or at the door.
