Maker Faire this Saturday, May 12. (512!) It looks like a great lineup of makers and vendors at the Pine Street Station location. I'll be there for a bit wandering about and then later (1pm) in my official capacity leading a workshop on, you guessed it, "Turning Old Tins Into Jewelry." If this doesn't inspire you, maybe one of these will:
Learn to Solder
Make Your Own Infinity Mirror
Make Seed Balls
Build a Mini Living Wall
Weird Things You Can Do with Homemade Gummy
If nothing else, you have to come in order to see the full size, fully remote R2-D2.
