Today the family got on The Tide and headed into Norfolk for the first annual Norfolk Mini Maker Faire.
I have been a subscriber of Make Magazine for a couple of years (issue 15, I think). And every time they have an event it's always a little frustrating that I'm sitting here in Virginia Beach, and the events are no where near where I am. A few years ago, Brian and I talked about going to a Make event in Philadelphia, but the schedule just didn't happen.
About two weeks ago, I was in a bookstore looking at the magazine rack and someone had left a flyer for Norfolk Mini Maker Faire. Out came my mobile and the family was registered by end of the night. Finally, an event that I could attend.
The Maker Faire was today, at the Norfolk Scope. I am happy that we were able to go.
There were robots playing basketball (ok, shooting hoops, but it was impressive what they could build in six weeks). We laughed when we saw a line-following robot (build the the ODU IEEE chapter) of the same model Sam's team tried to build at DI two years ago.
