Reminder that Atlanta MiniMaker Faire is this Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Tech Green on the Georgia Tech campus. Approximately 100 Makers of all types & interests are signed up to present their passions at the Faire, so there will be something to interest everyone — from robots to beekeeping, from 3D printers to classic computers, from Makerspaces to Engineering Help (only 5 cents!).
To get there, you can either take MARTA to the North Avenue Station and walk a short distance to the site, or you can drive there and park in one of the Georgia Tech parking decks nearby. The event itself will be held on the Tech Green between the Clough Commons and the Student Center; this map shows the area with the parking decks. Don’t forget to register ahead of time to lessen your wait to enter the Faire itself, and to make yourself eligible for some great prizes.
How to Get Your Extra Credit for Attending
It’s a two-step process.
- Come to the Copper Dancer Designs tent, where we will be doing our demonstrations. I’ll have a list there in a convenient location on which you will need to sign in. If you don’t see it, or me, ask one of our handy minions where to sign in. The map below shows the layout of the event; you will find us on the right (east) side of the Green, left (inside) side of the sidewalk, under our tent with our banner prominently displayed (I hope). If you have trouble with it, we’re catty-corner from our friend James with the awesome cigar box guitars, next to the modular food storage people, and not far from King of Pops!AMMF_Layout20131020
Make sure you stop by and sign in at some point, but as for the rest of your visit, wander around, find at least one awesome thing that excites you, and enjoy the day!
- By the second class meeting after the Faire (that would mean Wednesday 10/30 or Thursday 10/31), turn in a one-page minimum writeup on your MakerFaire experience via iCollege. Pictures of you there are optional but excellent proof that you actually attended. If for some reason you just COULD NOT find my spot to sign in, or couldn’t get to the sign in sheet, make sure you submit a picture of yourself there as well as a picture of your own personal wristband.
