Outdoor makers will be set up by the main entrance, and indoor makers will be right inside in the atrium. The event is free and open to all (COSI’s regular exhibits and activites will also be open, at the usual rates for members and non-members).

We have dozens of makers lined up: 3D printing, Arduino and Raspberry Pi-monitored Hydroponics, a world class robotics team, blacksmithing, metal casting, laser cutting and much, much more. There are also plenty of hands-on Make-and-Take activities and live demos. We even have a giant Brownie Camera Obscura.
