Project Day: Mini Maker Faire

Yay! One of our favorite events, the Portland Mini Maker Faire, was yesterday. We went with some friends of ours (I’m talking about you Tanya and Brian!) and saw so much cool stuff!

Walking around with Pannonica, she¬†enjoyed making a vinyl superhero mask, checking out some of Portland Center Stage’s handmade props, and getting the chance to use a 3-D pen.

We also liked watching a demonstration of local robotics team, the Flaming Chickens. They’d made a robot catapult. Super cool! Check out my friend Heather Q’s documentary about them.

After that we hooked back up with the rest of the family and our friends and got to see some other cool exhibits like PCC’s push-button drums, Intel and ADX’s scrap sculptures, and we also made a couple of cool robot friends. All in all a pretty great event!

And here’s just a sneak peak at what we were inspired to go home and work on. Thanks Brian for all the help!
