12 Days Until ........ World Maker Faire New York!
Boy, have we got a line-up for you! We just announced the interviews, panels, speakers, how-to workshops, and more that will be headlining at World Maker Faire New York 2013. We'll be delivering the thought leaders and rising innovators that will help you learn more about how to be a maker, the purpose of making, all of the many things you can make (including a new and improved you!), the future of making, and more. Here are all the details:
We'll have seven stages this year that will host a huge variety of talks. Debuting this year is the Make: 3D Printing Stage to give you 3D printing enthusiasts all you need to know about the latest and greatest in digital fabrication, materials, and making.
The program covers emerging technologies, how to roast your own coffee, the latest in 3D printing and Arduino, puppet-making the open source way, medical advancements thanks to making, embracing and building on kids' desire to make, and everything in between. There's definitely something for everyone!
