Planning for 2013

Now that we’ve (mostly) recovered from the success of our first ever OC Mini Maker Faire we’re beginning to look to the coming year.     On the top of the list is arranging a date that will not coincide with other major events that attract like-minded people.    With that in mind we’re considering the first couple of weeks in August 2013, anybody out there know of potentially conflicting events for that time frame?

Next on the list is expanding and improving our repertoire of activities, Makers and cool things to see and do.     There are some activities that we know we want but need help in making them happen, here’s a list of our top favorites:

  • Arduino workshop
  • Make Play Day (open making and free-build with piles of random stuff to create with plus tools, hot glue guns, tape, etc.)
  • Paper Rocket Make and Launch
  • Programming workshops (like Scratch, etc.)

What we need are volunteers or groups to help supply and run these activities so, if you or anyone you know might be interested please contact us at Info@OCMiniMakerFaire.com.

Also, if you have an idea for a great booth, we’d love to hear about it!
