The Mini-Maker Faire

 

continued

In the far corner of the barns were corralled the robots from FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). These are constructed by local high school students in partnership with volunteers who are scientists and engineers. Children were allowed to toss balls into the corral, and the robots would go pick them up. The tasks seemed simple, but the robots were huge, an indication of the complexity of the tasks.

There were dozens of other projects--some incorporated art and science, some were easy, some were just one person's idea. Much of it was hands-on. It was like going to a county fair for nerds.

The Mini-Maker Faire returns to the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds on Saturday, June 4.    (end of article)
