The Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire, touted as a celebration of local creativity and ingenuity, will take place at Newark Museum this Saturday, April 30 fro 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The yearly event will invite makers and creators to present their do-it-yourself projects, which include work in areas as far afield as woodworking, bee keeping, robotics, and 3D-printed art.
Visitors can enjoy demonstrations, workshops, and speakers that are, according to the Maker Faire’s website, “pushing the limits of the art, science and technology.”
The “maker” movement is a larger phenomenon that incorporates crafters, tech enthusiasts, scientists, and others who merge technology and tinkering with a do-it-yourself ethos. The event will include about 50 maker exhibits, and there will be food for sale from local restaurants Burger Walla and Harvest Table.
Newark Museum is located at 49 Washington Street. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
