The First Ever Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire
Saturday, October 3, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Tunxis Community College, Farmington, CT

This free, family-friendly celebration is open to people of all ages who are interested in creating, making, building, innovating, tinkering, hacking, engineering, designing or connecting.

Maker Faires are hands-on events that showcase projects makers are working on, as they share new forms of innovation and experimentation across a range of disciplines.

On display will include: robotics, electronic music, upcycling, rocket-building, prosthetics, 3D scanning, radio building, shoe making, and more.

This program is sponsored by the Connecticut College of Technology’s Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing (RCNGM) through funding from the National Science Foundation. CBIA is producing the event on behalf of the RCNGM.

This year’s sponsors are Legrand, Stanley Black & Decker, LEGO Systems, Inc., TRUMPF, and Tunxis Community College.
