Fire Breathing Dragon Maker Faire
Makerspace News

Attending a Maker Faire is like attending “the Greatest Show and Tell on Earth”.  Walk past a fire-breathing dragon, into a circus tent and start making music with paint. Then use a robot to fill cups with water and move on to try using a 3D printer for the first time.
