PLEASANT PRAIRIE — The Pleasant Prairie Mini Maker Faire will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at the Pleasant Prairie RecPlex, 9900 Terwall Terrace.
Part science fair, part county fair and part something entirely new, the Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
This year’s booths will include robots, wood turning, blacksmithing, do-it-yourself jar crafts, hands-on pottery, wool spinning, map making, folk art and painting, Internet of Things & Embedded Systems, underwater robots, fuel efficient vehicles, homemade video games, knitting and telescopes.
A cardboard boat regatta will be held as part of the event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the RecPlex Aqua Arena.
There is no admission fee but people are asked to register in advance at http://pleasantprairie.makerfaire.com/tickets or register at the door.
