One of the many wild inventions at Maker Faire: “time to change” (a 13 ft tall clock made nearly exclusively out of bicycles).

Updates are now available about the specifics of the festival. During all Saturday and Sunday, there is a stage devoted exclusively to empowering and teaching educators tips, tools, and project-ideas to implement in their classrooms.
