A Nation of Makers

Jun 18, 2014

Today, President Obama hosted the first ever White House Maker Faire and said in a proclamation that made June 18 the National Day of Makers.

President Obama tweet “If you can imagine it, then you can do it” eloquently sums up Maker Faire - a faire driven by curiousity, creativity and imagination. I have always been intrigued by the mythbuster performances, creative lego objects, paper rocket launcher, diet coke and mentos eruption and electric Giraffe Russell to mention a few. They all have a story to tell and get you start thinking!
