World Maker Faire NYC 2013 with Make Lehigh Valley

We have a luxury bus for the 2nd annual Make Lehigh Valley trip to the World Maker Faire NYC on September 21st!

Part science fair part county fair...

...last year they had workshops, dozens of 3D printers of all shapes and sizes, concerts with theremins, presentations, quad-copters, sales on all sorts of electronics kits, organic crafts, light shows, flying objects, giant 20' butterflies you could ride around in, the New York Hall of Science is included, and so much more.  Good luck seeing it all!

Get a ride with us and get in on a 25% group discount for entry tickets!
Additionally, if the bus fills up we will be able to do a rebate for the bus ride up to $10 per passenger.

Taking a bus is a great way to meet and hang out with a bunch of other makers and a real easy trip into New York City.  The bus will drop us off and pick us up right at the front gate of the faire.

We're leaving at 9am from the Da Vinci Science Center parking lot in Allentown.  Directions to the Science Center can be found on their website.

Get an entry ticket and a seat on the bus from our WePay page.  If you've already purchased a ticket, you can still ride with us, just be sure to select the appropriate ride ticket.  You can also pay by cash or check at the Space, but email us to let us know as it is first come first serve.

Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It’s a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It’s typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.


Saturday 19th: 7hr Open Hack

We'll be opening up the hackerspace for an unprecedented 7hrs this Saturday!

We'll be opening for the Saturday (19th) open hack from 11a to 6pm. That's this Saturday as in a few days away.

Flying Platforms
I found out my neighbor has a business called Club Heli selling RC helicopters and parts. He's hoping to make it out. I told him we've been chatting about helicopters and such so made a special point of inviting him. He told me he's not looking for advertising so you know these aren't paid links, just notes about an interesting resource to be aware of.

Bring a Friend
As always, feel free to bring a friend, cousin, brother-in-law, uncle, neighbor, wife, kids or whomever.

Bring a Project
Also, bring out a project to work on. We have a good bit more space. If you stop by the Radio Shack on the way, mention Make Lehigh Valley. 😉

Feel free to bring something to show off and something to work on. If we have enough stuff to show off, I'll get a table setup for that stuff so people stopping by can browse over things. We can have our own super mini maker faire.
