3rd Annual Sonoma County Maker Kids Mini-Maker Faire set for Saturday, March 31, 2012

The Sonoma County Maker Kids Mini-Maker Faire 2012, a youth-oriented DIY (Do-It-Yourself) event that promotes science, technology, engineering, and math, is being held at Sonoma Country Day School on Saturday, April 2nd from 11:00 to 3:00. Kids of all ages (and some specially invited adult Makers) are encouraged to show off their creations and take part in hands-on activities at this fun, FREE event.

Produced by the Sonoma County Office of Education in partnership with Sonoma Country Day School, the Sonoma County Children's Museum, and the folks who produce the original and world’s largest Maker Faire in San Mateo County each year, Maker Kids Mini-Maker Faire celebrates things people create themselves -- from “ride-able sculptures” to appliance dissection turned into “junk art.”

"At the surface, a Maker Faire is a fun event for people of all ages," explains Maker Faire Event Director Sherry Huss. "But we want people to experience more than just a day of creative entertainment, we want them to leave feeling inspired -- that they too can create things, express themselves, and engage the world around them. Our goal is to resuscitate the spirit of American creativity and innovation."
