Hands-On Maker Faire Activities

At Maker Faire 60% of attendees will participate in hands-on projects or demonstrations. It’s part of the experience. When you go to Maker Faire you make and our San Diego event will be no different.

The video above is an example of a Learn to Solder activity.  Other classic examples include Compressed Air Rockets, Marshmallow Shooters, Nerdy Derby, and Self-watering Planters. We’re considering these and others and would welcome your ideas. Got a favorite? Know of a simple and interesting project? Add your ideas and suggestions to this post in the comments. We’ll read ‘em!
