The Hotchkiss School is hosting the 2018 Tri-State Mini Maker Faire. The Faire takes place at The Hotchkiss School’s Whitney Griswold Science Building on Sharon Road just north of the intersection with Route 112. The Faire takes place on Sunday, April 8th from 10 am to 3 pm.
This will be the community’s first opportunity to see Hotchkiss’ EFX technology lab, just completed this year.
Mini Maker Faires provide our community with a forum for creativity and conversation and feature science, technology, art and design. As part of our educational mission, the Library at The Hotchkiss School supports the Faire with a day full of exhibits and activities that will challenge and delight participants of all ages. The Faire is FREE and open to the public.
The Tri-State Mini Maker Faire was launched in 2016 as a way to showcase the creative people and organizations in our corner of the world. Our hometown of Salisbury, Connecticut has a population of around 4,000 with towns of a similar size all around us, including in nearby Massachusetts and New York state. We may be small—but we bat above our weight!
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
