Mini Maker Faire

A Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness. It’s a place to show and share new things.

Participants range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers, and are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of a Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect, and grow the community.

NCKLS demonstrated our 3D printer at the Aggieville Mini Maker Faire Saturday, September 12th. This was our booth (please note that the advertisements behind our booth were purely coincidental).

It may not look like much, but it was a big draw. Richard, LaDonna, and Melendra were busy all day answering questions like: How do 3D printers work? Why would a library have a 3D printer? How can I make 3D printable objects? Where can I find other 3D printable objects? and When will the library have a 3D printer program?

So, we want to remind you that Melendra is happy to come to your library and present a 3D printer program that answers any or all these questions. She’ll even take home one file per person to print for them!
