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.
