CoOp Week 1 November, Mini Maker Faire

This morning we attended the week 1 CoOp session, and then headed to our local Barnes and Noble in the afternoon for a Mini Maker Faire.

Truthfully, the maker faire was a bit disappointing. It was really just a product expo for some STEM-related merchandise. The stuff was cool, and it was hands-on, but it felt really sales-pitchy and not very organic. The Maker Faire we attended at the Akron Public Library  was a lot more to our liking. But we still had fun trying out some of the products.

S11 designed some “Modern Pirate Attire”. I love her attention to detail, and emphasis on weaponry.

The kids also had a chance to try some mini robots that could follow a line drawn by a special pen, and sewed a pillow with fabric they printed from a computer image.
