World Maker Faire 2012 is a showcase of creativity and cool technology that celebrates the maker mindset. It’s inspiring, stimulating, and fun for all ages. Come see first-time makers and favorites returning with something new. Learn how to solder, craft, create fun or practical items with a 3D printer, or interact with Robots.
