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 http://www.coastmakers.com 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!
