Thank you to the makers, volunteers, partners, sponsors, attendees, and supporters for participating in the first Salt Lake City Mini Maker Faire. Over 1500 people helped make this a great day. Onward and upward!

Five more days until amazing! It’s nice to have met many of you before the event. We are having a few more informational gatherings if you’d like to learn more.

Tuesday at 7:00pm at Library Square by the waterfall

This is for general information and to answer any specific questions from makers and volunteers. It’s also a chance to meet each other. If you’ve attended an information session before, have received answers to all of your questions, and don’t want to see our happy faces, then you don’t need to attend. Otherwise, we’ll see you there.

Thursday at 6:00pm at Library Square by the waterfall

This will be for general information for makers and volunteers and maybe an opportunity for volunteers to meet their team leader and get specifics about volunteer duties. Again, if you’d like to learn about volunteering, please show up. You’ll be joining an impressive group of volunteers. Janice, our volunteer manager, will be available to help volunteers sign up for a shift.

To sign up to volunteer, please go to Volunteers.

For tickets, go to Tickets.

Step 1 of all projects involving soldering is to get comfortable with soldering!

Come learn the basics at the Salt Lake City Mini Maker Faire. We’ll have Make robot blinky light pins available for learning…they’re a fun and simple way to add soldering to your list of skills. And you have a cool pin to show off.

The Learn to Solder booth will be available throughout the day, but come make your pin early so you can wear it around!

 

 

We’re hosting a Cardboard Challenge at the Salt Lake City Maker Faire as part of the Caine’s Arcade Global Cardboard Challenge. Build and share your own cardboard arcade game!

Additional details will be posted to our website this week, so stay tuned. We’re also looking for a few volunteers and sponsors to help with this fun event-within-an-event. Please go to our volunteer page to sign up.

If you aren’t familiar with Caine and his arcade, check out the most recent Caine’s Arcade video by Nirvan Mullick about this creative and entrepreneurial boy and the creative inspiration for cardboard arcades around the world.

Here are some more photos from Maker Faire Bay Area (one of the flagship events) to get everyone geared up for the Salt Lake City Mini Maker Faire.

Come meet your fellow Salt Lake City makers and share your new projects!
