A Day at the Maker Faire

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the May 23rd, 2007

The Maker Faire came to town and it was chock full of brilliant, freaky gadget makers and inventors from around the world. GETV’s Roving RoboReporter Violet Blue wanders the fairgrounds to see how things are going in the Make Play Day room, explores vintage pinball machines and checks in with the Power Tool Drag Races.

    That was cool. The weather looked beautiful and everyone seemed to have a perfect time, even the the kids tearing up the electronics.

    When I was teaching, I had my students do something similar. They brought in bags of junk and a shoe box or two and made underwater homes. The look on those childrens’ faces in your vid says it all. It’s much more fun than ToysRus…and it encourages creativity! A+
