COLUMBIA, SC– Columbia’s fifth annual Mini Maker Faire, an all-ages festival of do-it-yourself technology enthusiasts, crafters, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers and artists, will be held at EdVenture from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 29. Local makers will share their talents and inspire others to explore their inner inventor. EdVenture and exhibitors will offer demonstrations and hands-on activities including robotics teams from area schools, comic book art by Soda City Art Studio, book making by Usborne Books, wool art sculpting by Felt Fashion, 3-D printing and community planning with Sustainable Midlands.

Part science fair, part county fair and part celebration of all things creative, the Columbia Mini Maker Faire is a localized version of the national Maker Faire which hosts over 100,000 visitors in San Mateo each year.  The Columbia Mini Maker Faire is a show-and-tell for people of all ages and a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in the local community.

Columbia Mini Maker Faire is presented by Ingersoll Rand, Club Car and Trane Heating & Cooling. Admission to the Columbia Mini Maker Faire is free with membership or regular admission, and tickets can be purchases at the door.
