Make day coming to St. Paul

I’m a big fan of Make Magazine (even though I’ve made roughly zero things from the mag). I already had my Twin Cities pride tickled when Make started producing a TV show with TPT here in the Twin Cities. But now they’ve gone and one-upped everything and are having a “Make Day” at the Science Museum of Minnesota. It’s not quite a Maker Faire, but about as good as we’re going to get in Minnesota in March.

Here are the details:

Make: Day celebrates the ingenuity and inventiveness in our community. Building off the success of Maker Faires and the American Maker events, Make: Day will give local engineers, artists, tinkerers and inventors the opportunity to showcase their DIY creations to Science Museum visitors.

Festivities will take place on Saturday, March 14th, from 10 am to 3 pm throughout the Science Museum’s exhibit galleries. The event is included in the regular admission price and free to all members of the museum.

  • Here are some of the things you’ll find:
  • Dozens of other local talented Makers, several of which appear on the first season of Make: television
  • All of the Maker Workshop projects including the Burrito Blaster and the DTV Antenna
  • Demonstrations from Makers and musical performances emceed by our very own William Gurstelle
  • Tons of hands-on activities for people of all ages
  • I hope to see some mnartists there, too.
