UTICA, NY – From musical bananas, to high tech drones and sculptures, there was something for everyone Saturday, at the Mohawk Valley Mini Maker Faire.
The event was held at SUNY Poly and presented by the college and the thiNCubator.
It is a celebration of creativity, ingenuity, and diversity.
Daryl Lee, an associate professor at SUNY Poly, says makers from around the community are given the chance to come together to display their wares and possibly come up with some new ideas.
“What’s exciting about the Mini Maker Faire is the diversity of the different things that people do. When you get people who are in engineering and people who are in art together, they come up with new ideas. Creativity is one of the keys for community and economic revitalization.”
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay area and has since grown into a world wide event.
