Most know that the Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire - Powered by TekVenture is an event to celebrate Makers and the cool things they make. Maker Faires are "the greatest show and tell on earth" and Fort Wayne's version is no different though now it serves as a fund-raiser for TekVenture, Fort Wayne's only membership-based, not-for-profit art and technology lab.
You can learn to solder and weld onsite or learn about basic electricity and motor-making. You can ride a tandem bike that has 3 tires, 1 in the front and 2 in the back? You'll see one-of-a-kind art cars and a fine art piece being unveiled at Maker Faire before it heads to Ann Arbor's Art Prize in September. Kids can play at the CogBots exhibit where their parents can custom order cogs in most any shape or size. Are you the spouse of a Maker, it's ok, we'll have something for you at the Faire too.
Visit us after the Faire this Saturday from 6pm - 10pm to see what we've been up to as we've cleaned out the building, worked to bring it to code, and worked to build out labs for making.
We have a little surprise later that evening so join us for more fun at TekVenture!
