Here’s a walk through video of our event from Sunday (28th). Thank you to Kee Choi for letting us use it! If you didn’t make it there, here’s some of what you missed.
LV Mini Maker Faire in Vegas Seven: “Attention all creative types: the age of the geek is upon us this weekend, and the Mini Maker Faire is offering a warm welcome.”
To celebrate our amazingly diverse and talented community, Maker Faire is organizing special meet-ups and panels. Here is our tentative line-up:
12:30: Photographers show their camera mods and how it enhances their art. Among the highlights: Checko Salgado will do a light painting demonstration. Julian Kilker, who was just named Best Local Photographer by KNPR’s Desert Companion, will also be there talking about camera mods and/or data journalism. Markus Houy is showing an external camera device help focus an anamorphic lens attachment.
1:30: Teachers who are curious about free and low cost local resources to foster a “Maker Mindset” and encourage students who are self-starters in STEAM courses can talk to a panel of local educators doing fantastic work with sometimes minimal resources. Some topics: creating Maker spaces in schools; school Maker Faires, producing Maker summer camps; Next Generation Science Standards-based professional development for teachers, and more!
2:30: Drones! Since there will be a big drone arena at the Maker Faire with anything from toys to prosumer drones to racing drones, we needed to have a panel. Come meet our local drone experts!
4:30: Making “Making” a Business: Doing what you love takes financial security. Meet a panel of locals who have been there, done that, and have special insights into making Making into a business, patents, and kickstarters.
