Maker Festival Preps

I'm excited to be a part of the Corvallis Benton County Public Library's first ever Maker Festival! I got wind of it back in January, and have been flooding the poor librarian in charge with hair-brain ideas ever since. I have separate displays for both days and helped recruit two other makers for the event!

If you attended the festival, got my card, and beat me back here, you can find my quick-start guides to Arduino and Raspberry Pi on the right. Follow the links to any of my projects that interested you. Make a comment to the posts if you have questions.

I'm hoping to leverage all this for the next HP's Bring Your Child to Work Day (if it happens this year). I've also been invited to participate with the Library's Teen Maker Night! I'm also planning to incorporate some "Maker Educational Outreach" at my next train show in April!

What a great time to be a Maker. I hope we got some novice Makers charged up and ready to try something new! I sure am. Maybe mom can get her table back now.

  1. Good Afternoon,
    I am working with a very small team of folks who would like to work toward holding a mini-makers fair/DaVinci Days type of event in Toledo, Oregon. We are a town of artists and artisans and industry and science, and we would like to celebrate human ingenuity while looking for ways to address family sustainability, resourcefulness, and entrepreneurship. I found your contact information on the Eugene Makers Fair site, and wanted to contact you to see if you might be interested in participating in our event on August 4. In the spirit of you don't know until you ask, we are also wondering if you are willing to share the names of others who share these interests. Thank you for your time and consideration.
