Buy your tickets for Champlain Mini Maker Faire early and save!
In its simplest form, Maker Faire creates conversations with Makers. It is a show-and-tell format for people of all ages that brings out the “kid” in all of us. Maker Faire is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in their local community. Yet, Maker Faire is a ‘fair” that is fun and engaging.
Shelburne Farms will host the Champlain Mini Maker Faire September 28-29 at the Coach Barn, a beautiful late 1900 barn with stables, a courtyard, and open indoor spaces adjacent to Lake Champlain.
See you there! Look for the Vermont Makers booths.
Attention Makers! What do you want in a Maker Space? Now is your chance to weigh in.

What is FIRST?
The varsity Sport for the Mind, FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
Students get to:
- Learn from professional engineers
- Build and compete with a robot of their own design
- Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
- Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
- Earn a place in the World Championship
- Qualify for over $16 million in college scholarships
