On 8th November, Miami Mini Maker Faire was organized at Wynwood for celebrating innovation in maker movement at South Florida. And needless to say, numerous exhibitors belonging to the field of 3D Printing, fashion designing, robotics and virtual reality were a part of this event.
Great platform for young tech-makers
Before the event, Ric Herrero, the co-founder of the non-profit organization MIAMade had said that “This year, as we are expecting a lot of robots, we have transformed LightBox’s main area into a Robotics Pavilion.”
The event had different sections for young tech-makers that featured workshops on innovation, design and coding.
Amazing project presentations
The Maker Corps Members at the event held classes on CAD designing, prototyping, 3D printing, robotics as well as craft making and instructed the students throughout the implementation of different projects. It was a fantastic event wherein children of all ages were joined by the friends and family as they presented their innovations in front of the audiences.
Christopher Roldan, a 15 year old boy displayed the robots made out of recycled items that he had made by helping his dad Jorge Roldan. Yet another group of children belonging to critical thinking class of Frank C. Martin International World School from Richmond Heights delighted the audience by making music with piano" which was designed by Victor Vincent of Miami.
