Circuit Board Lab                       1 PM  in TekVenture Maker Station beside Downtown Public Library

Your not a true electronics geek until you can design and make your own circuit boards. Join Matt Krueger of Mini Laser Cutter workshop fame (Fall Into Making Workshops, Fall 2013) as he shows you how to design a simple motor controller circuit board. Then you will actually etch the board. Then learn to solder up all the components onto the board in the Circuit Board Lab in the afternoon.

Deadline to Submit 2013 Call for Makers Extended to August 16!

For those who plan Maker Faires, we know creative types often don't like rules, reading the fine print, completing registration forms, or meeting deadlines. Makers you know who you are.  As a result, we've decided to extend our registration deadline. Submit your Call for Makers before Friday, August 16 to hold a spot for showing off your projects.

What does it cost to be a Maker? It's free to those who just want to share their ideas and projects. Commercial Makers (1 or 2 individuals) who want to sell their items to the public are charged $100. Exhibit spaces also available for vendors (3 or more employees) as well. Contact us with questions about exhibiting, volunteering, racing, or sponsoring.
