The Chester County Library Mini Maker Fair will be a one-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for resourceful, creative people – the makers – who like to tinker and love to make things.
Builders, inventors, innovators, hackers, tinkerers, gadgeteers, designers, artists, fabricators, welders, craftspeople, engineers, scientists, fabric technologists and more are welcome to show off their creations.The Mini Maker Fair will demonstrate the power and reach of the growing maker movement, attracting people from all walks of life and inviting them to explore, experiment and experience science, technology, art, engineering and more.
The Chester County Library’s Mini Maker Fair will feature 3D printers, rockets, robots, aeroponic tower garden systems, drawbots, Ruben tube demonstrations, homemade arcade machines and more. The event is designed to be hands-on for all ages. Attendees can make homemade ice cream, their own jewelry, designs, even their own plant to take home to the garden. Along with the makers, there will also be food, live music and fun for the whole family.
