If you couldn’t make it to the Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 event you might be interested in a couple of videos that have been put together by Adafruit providing a quick glimpse of the highlights from this year’s event.
The Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 is in its 11th year and provides a family friendly “festival of invention creativity and resourcefulness” to celebrate the Maker movement. Check out the videos below to learn more.
Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It’s a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It’s typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.
