Come See Activity Rocket at NOVA Maker Faire Sunday March 16th

Do you and your children like to work with their hands? Are you interested in electronics, robots, 3D printing, or other cool technologies? If so, the NoVa Mini Makers Faire is for you! What is a maker, you ask? Well, a maker is someone who is on the very forefront of technology. From jewelry making to wood and metalworking to electronics, a maker is someone that stresses new and unique applications of technologies, and encourages invention and prototyping. We focus not only on using and learning practical skills but applying these skills in new and creative ways.

Still confused? Let’s give you some examples:

Want your child to be an angel for Halloween? Can’t find wings? We make them!

Would you like to build and fly a quadcopter? (a helicopter with four rotors). How about one that is almost the size of a quarter?

Maybe you want to build a robot. One so big you can actually ride in it!

Maybe you are interested in 3D printing and need to know how to get started!

If any of these activities and many many more sound interesting to you then you need to come to the first ever Northern Virginia Mini Maker Faire. Here you will see all kinds of maker projects and learn how to get started. There will be fun events for children of all ages. You can learn to solder, take apart a printer to see how it works, fly a drone, make soap, and even learn about about somethins called Arduino! Kids of all ages can program this computer to perform awesome tasks like watering your plants (and tweeting you that it was done) or controlling your lights around the house!

Sound like fun? The event will be held at: South Lakes High School, 11400 S Lakes Dr., Reston, VA 20191 and Hughes Middle School, 11401 Ridge Heights Rd, Reston, VA 2019

On Sunday Mar 16th from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. You will need tickets in advance and they are selling out fast!  Once they are gone, your chance to see all of these new, cool exhibits will be too!
