For its 7th annual Maker Faire, the Cleveland Public Library has partnered with the Great Lakes Science Center, which is offering more space for experiments, interactive demonstrations, games and hands-on projects. Also blowing things up.
The family-friendly event gives visitors of all ages the chance to explore what can happen when creativity meets science meets engineering. “Maker Faire Cleveland brings together some of the best inventors and thinkers from all over the countrym” says CPL executive director. Felton Thomas Jr. “Every year, the event gets bigger and better and we invite everyone to attend this event and find inspiration.”
So come on down and watch things blow up and burn. Larchmere Fire Works will have an interactive glass demo, while games can try their hand at BOMBFEST, a sumo wrestling game with explosives. Try some SkeeBowling, design with LEGO blocks (don’t make any of those identical row houses springing up all over the west side; that’s not creative!) or fiddle around with drones, robots and 3D instruments. And the NASA Glenn Research Center will have an interactive exhibit exploring the work that goes into a space launch.
And there will be slime to play with so make sure the kids aren’t wearing their good clothes!
The event is free, but registration is required. Go here to register and find a full schedule of activities.
