We’ve been fortunate for the support of many community partners who offer us space at their events to setup and promote this year’s Calgary Maker Faire .
Because Calgary Maker Faire is all about making we try to always have hands-on activities at these events. This makes it more interesting for everyone and less of a sales pitch.
At these events we need the help of volunteers, like you, especially with the hands-on activities. We keep these community outings fun for all volunteers. Water and snacks are always provided. No prior experience is necessary as all training is provided.
Nerdy Derby: With this activity participants build a small race car from a ton of provided materials. The cars then race down a track where the purpose isn’t so much winning as it is testing and refining to make the car even better.
Learn to Solder: This activity allows participants to try something most people would never expect to do, and that’s solder electronic components to a circuit board that when complete it lights up, as do the faces of all the participants who take part.
Building: Participants will use materials to build fun projects. With a variety of materials participants use their imagination and create to their hearts content.
All activities include the following elements:
If you’re interested in helping us out at any of these events just sign-up to volunteer and mention the one’s you can help with.
