Maker Faire Bay Area 2012 is just two weeks away! Join in on the world’s largest “Do-it-Yourself” festival, described by Maker Magazine as:

“The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a two day, family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.”

More specifically, Maker Faire brings together inventors, artists, engineers, science clubs and students, hobbyists, commercial exhibitors, and even white house correspondents for a chance to display their creations and learn by doing. So large and important is this event that President Obama made a “special plea” for the press to highlight the creativity that Maker Faire stimulates in our nation’s youth.

This festival attracts DIY inventors from all walks of life, from the young person who makes his or her idea come to life

(such as the creator of the extreme marshmallow cannon),

to the experienced artist tirelessly working to see their idea take shape

(such as the artist of this handmade wood bicycles),

even to the deeply practical innovator who sees a need and makes it happen

(such as the inventors, BootstrapSolar, of the DIY Solar Charger Kit).

So consider attending the 2012 Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA. For more information, visit

We leave you with this enticing one minute trailer that captures the “heart” of Maker Faire. Enjoy!
