Some of the projects that we had last year included:

  • Arc + Flame Welding Simulator
  • A test of strength to win some fire with Hell Blazer, The Flaming Carnival Game
  • Learning to solder your first electronics project
  • Screen printing your own Rochester Mini Maker Faire poster to take home
  • Tearing apart old electronics and see how they worked
  • Wearing a 3D printed prosthetic with e-NABLE
  • Animating your first stop-motion film
  • Piloting a drone
  • Being inspired by kid Makers, including the Rosie‚Äôs Robots, a 9 year old roboticist
  • Playing video and board games developed right here in Rochester
  • Marveling at a theme park built with K’nex
  • Creating useful items out of old cassette tapes
  • Hearing live music from the Rochester Recorder Society
  • Mixing the future with the past with the Rochester Steampunk Society and the Enchanted City Steampunk Festival from Troy
  • Picking a lock with The Open Organization Of Lockpickers
  • Driving robots with local FIRST Robotics teams
