Because: of course it is! Everyone should get to enjoy going to science fairs that overflow an event center and have sculptures that walk or blast fire. I'm lucky to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where both adults AND their children joyfully celebrate science.
Also: I WAS GIVEN NASA STICKERS. *dancing* My work laptop has just been improved many many times over!
There are some fun things to highlight:
- My Maker Faire favorite exhibitors,Flaming Lotus Girls (flaminglotus.com) had machines that warmed me with fire (makerfaire.com).
- The brilliantly lit, giant centipede, Myriapoda by To Be Continued... (makerfaire.com) glowed brightly in the intentionally dark hall.
- There was this amazing Rearing Horse by Barry Crawford (makerfaire.com) that towered above us.
- the giant cardboard dinosaur up top was made by EPC-M.ZONE (makerfaire.com). If you follow the link, you can watch a time-lapse of the dino being made.
There was also a piece that is what any Tardis of mine would likely look like, called Axis Mundi, which I'll link to below:
