The First Annual Boise Mini Maker Faire is days away and we’re getting excited to show you what Boise is making. On Saturday, May 25th, we’ll feature presentations from select makers at the Hayes Auditorium at Boise Public Library. The lineup includes the story behind Radio Boise, Boise’s first independent radio station; a presentation on living a minimalist lifestyle—from someone who lives in a 196 square foot house; a glimpse into how libraries across the Idaho are transforming their buildings into maker spaces; and a special workshop for makers on Stanford’s D-School principals and the elements of design thinking.
On Sunday, May 26th, we’ll get hands-on at the Discovery Center of Idaho. Inventors, crafters and tinkerers will converge at DCI to show you what they make and how they do it. Sunday’s events will feature displays from Handy Chairs, wheelchairs constructed of bikes and wood; experiments in wild fermentation; and the return of Bot Comp, an epic battle of robots. That’s right—we’re going to have robots. That battle. This is going to be awesome.
So, now that you know what to expect, grab a friend and make plans to attend the First Annual Boise Mini Maker Faire over Memorial Day weekend. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this.
