Missed the Maker Faire? Catch the pictures!
The two-day annual festival that took place May 19 and 20 in San Mateo draws nearly 100,000 visitors, and hundreds of Makers, many from our own backyards.
Ana Araujo of Campbell who owns When Creativity Knocks, an online craft resource offered a free do-it-yourself workshop to make a mini blackboard made out of old vinyl records.
Kids lined up to slap on a little blackboard paint, press on some decorative stickers and then head over to Araujo who punched a couple holes in the record—one for hanging the blackboard and one to hold a piece of chalk tied to a string.
Ella Smith, a Young Maker and 4th grader from Portal Elementary School in Cupertino showed off Zevrino, her automatic cat feeder. Powering the cat feeder with an Arduino, Ella worked with her dad, Roger, to build the feeder that would dispense food at scheduled times.
