Sneak Peek of the Program Guide - no need to print it, we will have them for you at the gate. The Program Guide also has an exhibit map on the back to help you navigate the over 100  exhibits! Huge thanks go to Sundance Marketing Solutions for rush printing these guides at the very last moment possible so that you could have the most up-to-date guide possible!

We’ve brought together over 100 local maker exhibits  in the air-conditioned expo hall to amaze and inspire you, including everything from an animatronic Singing Toucan to the Orlando Science Center’s Singing Telsa Coil. From Rockets to Robots, 3D printers to Lego Printers, adorable monsters to not-so-adorable monsters  - and much, much more.

The Learn to Solder pins have arrived – the crew at FamiLAB are ready to teach another 500 people how to solder by making a great blinky robot pin!

Makers are busy preparing interactive exhibits where you can learn to make things with duct tape, learn to sew, learn the basics of pottery, make your own screen-printed t-shirt, make electronic musical things and of course learn to solder!

If that’s not enough to keep you busy, FamiLAB is offering a workshop taught by Mitch Altman, inventor of the TV-B-Gone.  “Arduino for Total Newbies” includes the basics of soldering, electronics, and Arduino all in one 3 hour workshop! (This workshop has a separate ticket, and is limited to 30 participants, act quickly!)

Outside we will have the Power Racing track with teams from groups like FamiLAB, Skillhouse, and Full Sail University.

Watch overhead as you walk around, as you might see one of Hoverfly’s multi-rotor helicopters shooting photos and video of the crowd.

We’ve got a great crew of community volunteers making Orlando Mini Maker Faire an amazing event. Check back here  for the latest, and Like us on Facebook to see all the community discussion as our Makers and Attendees prepare for the event…
