Do you enjoy creating new inventions or taking things apart to see how they work? Maybe you’ve seen some of the Do-It-Yourself projects from Make Magazine ( but you’re not sure how to finish certain parts. This is an opportunity for tinkerers, inventors, makers, artists, and crafters to share your knowledge and inspiration with others from young to old in a family friendly atmosphere.
