I have been involved in the maker movement for about four years now but never had the opportunity to attend the faire. It was great to see all the youngsters, engaging in soldering and electronics. Overheard much talk about ‘Arduino in the classroom’. I feel kids who take a liking to this at such a young age will have no fear of technical hurdles. The faire needs more oversized and outrageous projects: cars, monsters, robots, etc. With such confined living in NYC I guess it may be difficult. I hope during my time in NYC I will enter one or two projects into the faire. Have to start thinking wildly….
