Orlando Mini Maker Faire is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local DIY science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, and more. Orlando Mini Maker Faire 2013 will be held at Orlando Science Center on October 5th, 2013!
We are VERY excited to announce a new partnership to bring Orlando Mini Maker Faire to Orlando Science Center starting in 2013!
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 at Orlando Science Center and will feature many of the amazing Makers from our inaugural event, new Makers from within our community, AND Maker-focused exhibits from Orlando Science Center.
In the coming weeks, we will start accepting applications for Maker exhibits, workshops, talks, and performances.

Ron Thompson from Hackerspace Titusville and Jamie Cunningham from Backyard Workshop paired up at Orlando Mini Maker Faire to show off 3d printers, discuss other CNC tools, and give an aluminum casting demonstration.
Ron created this video from their pictures – make sure you check out the skull they cast from aluminum at the event!
If you click through to Youtube, you can also get the details about the music playing with the video, it is from Jamie’s band “Big Moon Rocket”…
Wired GeekMom contributor Gina Clifford attended Orlando Mini Maker Faire and met Mitch Altman, – she labeled him an “Electronics Jedi” – check out her GeekMom post which also features a picture of her son in Mitch’s “Arduino for Total Newbies” workshop at Orlando Mini Maker Faire.
Orlando Mini Maker Faire was the first “off-line outing” for Robots Are Awesome – but you wouldn’t have known it from their awesome booth full of awesome robots. Many robots were “adopted” at the event, and we hope you like yours as much as we like the ones we adopted
Ricardo stopped by the fairgrounds on our event setup day, and brought lots of photo gear to Orlando Mini Maker Faire. Below are links to the Orlando Sentinel website where you can see the videos he created. Ricardo is a maker (just get him talking about his camera mods!) and it is great to see the event from the perspective of his lenses!
This first link is to a story and a video overview of the event, with interview footage from Ian Cole & Mitch Altman. (Click the image to be taken to the Orlando Sentinel website…)
This video is timelapse from the event, taken right inside the main hall entrance using a GoPro on a tripod. (Click the image to be taken to the Orlando Sentinel website…)
