Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire

The greatest show (and tell) on earth is happening on November 15, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Poughkeepsie Day School. Established and emerging "makers" (broadly defined as crafters, tinkerers, farmers, inventors, hackers, scientists, and artists) join together to showcase exhibits and installations that provide interactive and hands-on experiences at the Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire. There'll be music, food, and educational workshops emphasizing DIY science and technology, urban farming, and sustainability. Exhibitions include Bloxes (large, cardboard Legos durable enough to build structures with), animals from Clover Brook Farm, toothpaste geysers, rockets, and much more that will engage adults and kids in learning, play, and inspiration. Admission for ages five and up is $10, and a family pass is $40 (two adults and up to three children ages five to 18). Makerfairepoughkeepsie.com
