Troy Mini Maker Faire at TVCOG

makerbotThe Troy Mini Maker Faire will be at the Tech Valley Center of Gravity August 27, and there's an open call for makers. Blurbage:

The Troy Mini Maker Faire is looking for artists, engineers, educators, and enthusiasts who are willing to show off their creations, skills, or works-in-progress to the public. The more interactive your exhibit, the better! We hope to have a nice mix of technology, life skills, art, educational activities, and entertainment...

The call includes a big list of the sort of projects they're looking for -- everything from fiber arts to 3D printing to robots to cooking. (The list is after the jump.) Here's the application.

Exhibits will be set up both inside the Center of Gravity space and outside along Broadway. That day is The Enchanted City festival in downtown Troy.

Here's that list of the sorts of projects the maker faire is looking for:

handicrafts
fiber arts, e-textiles and other wearables (both high tech and traditional)
sustainable energy and living projects.
engineering
electronics
3d printing and other rapid prototyping techniques

One of the best features at the Bay Area Maker Faires was the robot battles inside a chain-link cage (yes, like UFC matches). Hope we can have that!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
