Colorado may be home to skiers and snowboarders, but earlier this month the makers came out to play. The NoCo Mini Maker Faire brought these innovators together at Colorado’s first Maker Faire event. Makers set up shop in Loveland, Colo., for Saturday’s event, and curious attendees eagerly arrived from across the state. The inaugural Maker Faire drew 3,300 attendees, who took part in DIY activities, chased droids and robots, designed and constructed paper crafts, mini gardens, and race cars, all while learning about the growing number of makerspaces, hackerspaces, craft guilds, and companies in the area.
“Our goal is not just to create a one-day event. It is to help innovators of all ages leverage this Maker Faire to create more opportunities for youth makers, entrepreneurs, and lifelong learners,” said Elise Weiland, Executive Director of Making Progress L3C, producer of the NoCo Mini Maker Faire.
