Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire

Saturday June 4, 2016: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: 1st Floor Lobby

This event is intended for all ages.

Now in its 8th year, the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire presents demonstrations and hands-on activities by makers of all types including roboticists, crafters, artists working with technology, and students.

Come learn how to solder; see mechanical, electrical and micro-controlled devices; and participate in technology new and old. The Faire features Washtenaw County's high school FIRST Robotics teams, the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum, Maker Works and many more fantastic exhibitors.


We had a great time!

Thanks to everyone involved.

Thank you!

Thank you for coming, keebs23! We are glad you had a good time.

Maker Faire with a Preschooler

My daughter is four and we had a great time at the Mini Maker Faire! Her favorite stations were making an electronic music by tapping on a tablet, cutting/assembling/racing a car out of foam and wood, and using a real soldering iron to assemble a wearable pin with a blinking LED. One improvement for next year could be to mark stations with activities that are appropriate for preschool-aged kids. This would make attendance easier on families with young children, since the event is quite large and it wears on little ones' stamina to walk around to all the stations looking for those with PreK-friendly activities.


Really fun

Dang, I missed it.

Our school had a robotics team.

Get ready for next year!

Sorry you missed the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire this year, TBB, but be on the lookout for next year's Faire!
