Are you looking for something a little different to enjoy with the kids this coming weekend? Well, there’s a really neat event happening in Toronto, at Wychwood Barns (St. Clair and Bathurst – easily accessible by TTC!) The Toronto Mini Maker Faire takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 21-22, and will bring together innovators, artists and hackers from all over the GTA to participate in Toronto’s greatest show and tell!
This interactive event will introduce GTA families to dozens of “makers,” ready to show off their projects and involve you in a variety of activities and workshops. There’ll be robots, 3D printing (even with chocolate!), upcycled creations, scupltures, laser tag, and more. You can see the line-up of participating makers here.
