The Seattle Mini Maker Faire, held at the Museum of Pop Culture on September 16 & 17, is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness—and a place where attendees can be delighted by fellow tech enthusiasts, crafters, homesteaders, scientists, garage-and-kitchen tinkerers and other creators of all ages and backgrounds. The King County Library System will be present at the Mini Maker Faire—showcasing a wide array of the cool, creative tools patrons have access to through ideaX programming. Stop by our booth and learn how to create your own beat in Ableton, code a basic synth keyboard or even draw yourself a 3-Dimensional pair of glasses! Our booth will feature an interactive VR station, creative tool kits, a Cricut machine, HTC Vive, 3Doodler pen sets, LittleBits, Ableton Live music stations and much more!
The aim of KCLS's ideaX programming, much like Maker Faire's goal, is to inspire, inform, connect and grow the community. ideaX is supporting a creative culture changing lives throughout King County. At the library, we want to create opportunities for everyone to spark their imagination, dream big, and then discover a path to realize that dream. Our job is to connect people to awesome inspirations (like emerging technology) and then also connect them to a community where they can learn, make friends and grow. We can not wait to see what our fellow creators will be dreaming and scheming up at the Mini Maker Faire!
