Maker Faire Bay Area 2013

My family and I spent this past weekend exploring all the wonderful sights and activities at Maker Faire Bay Area. Maker Faire is billed as a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. We saw flaming sculptures, robots, giant musical tesla coils, people on stilts, Tapigami, the EepyBird Coke & Mentos show, and much more. The kids polished rocks; did lots of art projects, including a claymation video and an octopus made from gloves; helped build a beehive; made soap and silly putty; and climbed into a life-sized bejeweled flying saucer. If there is a Maker Fair event near you, GO!

Here a few math-themed photos I took at the event.
