World Maker Faire 2016 at NYSCI #WMF16 #makerfaire

Last year we attended the World Maker Faire, a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, resourcefulness and celebration of the Maker Movement.

Note: I received tickets to World Maker Faire 2016. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

We spent a full day visiting different booths and areas that were using a technology tie-in and was amazed by it all.

  1. Sharing creativity and making something with all generations is one of the most amazing things. Being a kid and an adult is the best.

  2. We've been to the Hall of Science before for a science project and it was lots of fun. We've wanted to go Maker Faire, my husband and my 11 year old stepdaughter are both maker and tinkerers. They love math and science. As do I! And are little one who is 2 even enjoyed the HofS. (She's getting a coding toy for Xmas this year). We are always inspired by these things and we love it as a tech creative family. I hope we win :)

  3. You can spend all day asking questions, and trying things out with your hands -- you go home feeling like you're prepared to start making things, even if you aren't sure how they're going to work! People are so brave with their ideas and creations.
