Manufacturing Day in Colorado Launches Colorado Maker Week, a week full of hands-on making, including inventor prototyping, manufacturing tours, and the NoCo Mini Maker Faire which showcases making and manufacturing in all forms in a family friendly celebration. Some projects are practical, innovative, life-saving, and some are just incredibly creative, fun, or all of those things. Maker Faire is all about embracing innovation, creativity, and sharing the things learned in that journey of discovery. Exhibits and displays can range from student projects, robotics, 3D printers and laser cutting, textile arts and crafts, home energy monitoring, rockets and radio control toys, sustainability, green technology, radios, vintage computers and game systems, electronics, electric vehicles, biology/biotech and chemistry projects, puppets, kites, kinetic sculptures, shelter, and unusual tools or machines. Makers are often pushing the limits of tech or exploring new ways of doing traditional crafts and we want folks who are willing to share and teach with an inquisitive and appreciative audience. We’re striving to show and teach participants that it’s okay to get hands-on with projects, to learn a new skill or subject, to experiment and design with wet labs, code, a paint brush or even all three together!
