Ottawa Mini Makerfaire!

IMG_1076-1000Ottawa Mini Makerfaire 2014 was a great success thanks to organizers, partners, makers and of course the general public! 170 Registered makers + 6000 people = party.

My booth was Zen Glider. It was tonnes of fun. I spent a lot of time running around the Science Museum with them. Of course I made some printed paper planes for the younger crowd. I also showed off my foam factory. I’m glad I brought it.

I also helped a couple of the other booths out. One of my Rolly Robots was at the Macadamian (Makerfaire sponsor) booth. Squiggly Draw and Swirly Draw were at the Ottawa Public Libraries booth.

I had run out of business cards so I relied on my stamped business card, making them as they were neded.

Here’s a mention in Make Magazine.
