Makers Local 256 is looking to participate in the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire.

It is a celebration of all things DIY - from robotics and electronics to arts and crafts. This is a family-friendly event that inspires creativity, promotes invention and brings makers together.

The creation of the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire was inspired by the great work Make Magazine and O’Reilly Media have done on their Bay Area, New York, and Detroit Maker Faires.

Local and regional Makers will show off their creations at the first-ever Atlanta Mini Maker Faire, hosted on Georgia Tech’s campus. The Faire is FREE to attend and will be open to all guests on Saturday, September 10th from 10 AM to 5 PM.

There will be cool things to see, interesting people to talk to, and fun things to play with. Bring your family and stop by for a day of discovery, fun, and inspiration!

Registration deadline is July 10th, please fill out your name below so we can give a head and project count.
