Video Tour of Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire 2012

The MAKESHOP Show pulls kid makers into the middle of the exciting world of makers, so, of course, our camera crew was right in the middle of Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire!

Kid maker Kristin (who you might remember from our Monkey Cupcakes episode) interviewed the makers she thought had cool projects that YOU would want to see on the Show. She had a tough job, because there were 65 projects to choose from! See what she chose just for you – and what she learned about 3D printing, blacksmithing, robots, race cars and more – in her video tour below.

We hope you’re inspired by all the amazing things that people make! Maker Faires happen all over the world. The MAKESHOP™ is in the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, which hosts Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire, so that’s our favorite one, of course. Click here to see if there’s a Maker Faire near YOU!

Stay calm and make on!

  1. Although there are many reasons to visit Pittsburgh as a tourist such as professional baseball and football, the Pirates and Steelers respectively there are also many historical gems you can find if you look for them. Most people know about Fort Pitt, and the Carnegie Museum on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh but my favorite attractions are two relics of an era gone by, across the Monongahela River from the skyscrapers on Mount Washington.
