Giveaway #FatherhoodIsLit Sends You To The Maker Faire

Growing up I was the type of kid that liked to break things and then fix them. My dad wasn’t a fan of some of the things I did, but he also encouraged me to be creative!

Now it’s my kids doing the same thing, they are Makers and so am I! That’s why you can always catch us doing something both cool and hands-on as a family.

This week we are taking our talents to the New York Hall Of Science for the famous, World Maker Faire! It’s their 8th year doing it, so you know it’s good!

I found some pictures of the actual event and I would be lying if I told you only my kids were excited!!

Besides all the learning that takes place, we also get to test our own skills by doing hands-on activities. My kids have some serious skills with mini hammers, so I can’t wait to see what they do with a soldering gun and more.

What is Maker Faire

Maker Faire is part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new! It’s a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “Makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
