This Saturday, October 1st, Sierra College in Rocklin will host the 2016 Mini Maker Faire.
If you are not familiar with the Mini Maker Faire, it’s an all day event featuring rockets, robots, DIY science, technology and more! This event will feature both established and emerging local “makers” showcasing their inventions and creativity. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to scientists, crafters to engineers… and everything in between! Neither age nor experience matters at this event – everyone comes together to showcase, learn and experiment.
My 7-year-old son is obsessed with the show “Battle bots”- and he is always trying to find ways to create robots from Legos, and is taking apart any old appliances we have to create new things… this is the event for him!
Not only will “Battle bots” be on site and demonstrating their skills, but there will be vendors and hands on projects for kids of all ages to enjoy. Some of the events and vendors include:
Upcycling of clothing Tie die stations Bender Toss competitions Rocket launching and photos Mutant vehicles Virtual Reality Zombie Games Robots and Battle bots Crafts and so much more!
This is a FREE family friendly event from 10am-5pm on the Sierra College Campus (5000, Rocklin Road) in Rocklin. If you have children who are interested in science and technology of any kind, this is the event to take them to. It’s free, educational and fun…and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
