What a Day! SC Mini Maker Faire a Huge Success

We’ll have more stats for you once we’ve recovered our wits after a huge day at the 2nd Annual Sunshine Coast Mini Maker Faire, but we can say that it exceeded expectations – again – and shows the demand on the Coast for the maker movement and STEM education.

26+ Makers, 12 workshops offered in multiple slots throughout the day, a booming hot dog stand benefiting Gibsons Elementary School, speakers on the main stage and a gazillion kids having an amazing time…

Are we doing it again for 2017? Absolutely! If you’d like to join the Mini Maker Faire crew head first to and join us there. Planning for 2017 will begin this fall.

In the meantime, here’s the photostream from yesterday – let us know if you have some images or video you’d like to add!
