Similar to the medieval markets of a well fortified village, craftsmen, artists, builders and people who know the business end of a trebuchet are getting together in just a few weeks to show off their mad skills. Unlike the good old pre-industrial age, though, this faire has a decidedly tech inclination, with robot builders, Arduino programmers, 3D printers and a whole mess of folks who do cool things with LEGO bricks demonstrating what their eclectic organizations and businesses are up to.
OMSI is excited and proud to announce the inaugural Portland Mini Maker Faire at OMSI September 15 & 16. While it’s only a short eight weeks away we couldn’t wait any longer to show and celebrate the fabulous maker community we have here in Portland and throughout the Pacific Northwest. Plus, as us Oregonians know, the weather won’t hold out much longer before we’re back in rainy season so why not end the summer right?!
