I am proud to have been on the core planning team for The inaugural Southwest Michigan Mini Maker Faire. It was held May 30 at Whirlpool Centennial Park in St. Joseph, Mich. It was a day of family-friendly making, learning, crafting, inventing and tinkering. Visitors were inspired by Makers, designers, artists, crafters, engineers, scientists and technologists from across our region. Entry was free to all and there were many opportunities to get hands-on and make "stuff"!
