SHREWSBURY: Pi Day Maker Faire at Shrewsbury Library

March 12, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Public Library will hold a Pi Day Maker Faire Saturday, March 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The free, all-ages event is a participatory celebration of the creativity, innovative technology use, and tinkering that define the Maker movement. Attendees will have the chance to see, play with, and learn about the unique creations of five exhibiting makers, including projects in interactive robotics, blacksmithing, and experiments in virtual reality.

Community members may also apply for a time slot to exhibit their own creative fruits, which may include anything from quilting to Minecraft creations. Patrons are also invited to participate in a Pi Day Pie Competition, in which Maker Faire attendees will vote on pies that participants submit.

Among the numerous other attractions will be a 3D body-scanning station, where attendees can create their own likeness as a 3D-printed action figure; a remote-control flying drone obstacle course; a chance to build a desktop computer from components; rockets powered by water pressure; and toys and games designed to teach kids core concepts of science, engineering, and coding.

For more information, or to register to exhibit or participate in the pie competition, email wevans@cwmars.org or call 508-841-8533. Shrewsbury Public Library is located at 214 Lake St.
