RCBI and a group of statewide partners present the West Virginia Makes Festival, a celebration of ingenuity and creativity. The Oct. 6 event, which will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature a Design Challenge for makers of all ages as well as hands-on activities for everyone. Join us on the Huntington campus of Marshall University at the Memorial Student Center for the 2017 WV Makes Festival. Our annual Design Challenge will provide makers the opportunity to demonstrate their new ideas and skills, and will reward their creative inspirations. Hobbyists, inventors, enthusiasts, artists and students of all ages who enter the Design Challenge are eligible for one of several prizes. The celebration is open to everyone. In addition to a Design Challenge, the West Virginia Makes Festival will feature 3D Printing, some of your favorite local artists, special exhibits and other attractions. Call 304.781.1675 if you need more information or any assistance in registering. "Our festival celebrates makers," said Charlotte Weber, RCBI Director & CEO. "It taps into the inventive community of entrepreneurs and innovators so they can interact with likeminded creative individuals." We hope to see you at the West Virginia Makes Festival!
