Let's get ready for Maker Faire 2017

This will be our fourth year at Maker Faire!  Woohoo!  

Each year Red Cloud students figure out new ideas to show, market, and sell at Maker Faire!  This year will be bigger and better than ever - this is the first year we will have two separate booths!  Also since we have a lot going on this year, we'll need the help of our top TAs!  Our best TAs will get to help out at Maker Faire this year - be on the look out for an invitation!

Booth 1:  ElectroWear

ElectorWear is back!  We had great success with creating fun and easy to make light up designs!  This year, the Maker Faire admin team offered us more space to create a fun activity center around light-up wearables!

  • NEW!  ElectroWear Light up Hats - a new type of hat with integrated LEDs in the brim that you can turn on or off at any time.  Easy to customize and comes in lights up in one of several colors!
  • ElectroWear EL Wires - light up your clothes, bike, kayak, or dog!  EL Wires are a fun and cool (and cool to the touch!) way to turn anything into a unique glow in the dark wearable!
  • Stickablez - light up butterflies that stick to your skin!  These are everyone's favorite easy, beginner light up wearable.  We show our guests how to put together their own device in under 1 minute!
  • NEW!  Glow in dark SLIME BAR - we're making slime! Woohoo!!  And our slime will glow in the dark!

Booth 2:  Timo the Pirate's Treasure Chest Computer

ARRRRR mateys!  We found a secret chest filled with treasure - inside is a full computer and monitor!  Timo and his team have been hard at work creating a treasure chest computer from scratch!  Be sure to join him and check out his final creation!

What is Maker Faire

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, 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.
