Maker Faire Detroit 2011 takes place July 30-31 at The Henry Ford in Detroit.
Created by the publishers of MAKE magazine, Maker Faire draws tech and DIY enthusiasts of all kinds. The event attracts families, school teachers, students, local science, hobby and tech clubs, as well as those who are drawn by a curiosity for the unorthodox and often whimsical MacGyver-like nature of Makers and their projects. Maker Faire will feature demonstrations and hands-on workshops over the two days. Visitors will enjoy arts and crafts, science and engineering, robotics, sustainable living, music and fine arts, fun for kids and families and more.
