Interested in 3D printing, robots, crafting, tinkering, engineering, electronics, violin construction or any of the other fun stuff that exists in the world of makerspaces? If so, please give serious consideration to attending this year’s Mini Maker Faire at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. Makerspaces have been appearing in libraries and community centres at an increasingly rapid pace over the past few years. This is a great opportunity for Library employees to get an inside look at a trend that could impact libraries as much as iPads, tablet PCs and eReaders have in the past.

The innovation laced through the National Capital Region is impressive, and this third edition of the Ottawa Mini Maker Faire is a chance to connect creative people from all over our region in a celebration of the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit. A Mini Maker Faire brings together families and individuals who celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, sustainability, and science and those who embrace the DIY spirit. At Mini Maker Faire, the focus is on the process of making – not just the finished product. Follow us on Twitter for updates.
