Eventbrite - Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire 2016

Botello Lumber is well-known for its charitable work in the community, and we are proud to have Botello’s as the event sponsor for the 2018 Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire. It can be a  challenge to explain the concepts of Makers and Maker Faires but not for Botello’s.  They have been enabling Cape Codders to build and make for years!  They offer a full-service lumber yard with site repair service, a customized mill, contractor division, kitchen and bath showroom, hardware center complete with a paint and wallpaper shop, plus a state-of-the-art rental center filled with hundreds of tools.  Thank you, Botello’s, for supporting the Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire!

 

The Call for Makers is open until April 5th 2019.  The Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire will showcase the amazing work of all kinds of makers on the Cape and the Islands—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.

When: April 27th, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Where: Mashpee Middle/High School

Cape Cod MakerRobot-Beach-Party-Logo-Smalls will be hosting its annual Robotics Competition at the 2017 Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire. This competition is designed to be accessible to people new to robotics, yet open-ended enough to allow experienced robotics developers a chance to show off their capabilities. Anyone is invited to participate with competitors broken into four leagues: Open League, Experienced Student League, Novice Student League, and Autonomous Robotics League. Any team may register for Open League while the Student Leagues are reserved for teams composed of students grades K-12. Any student team that does not participate in a national robotics competition may elect to join the Novice league. The Autonomous Robotics league is open to any robot that operates without human control/intervention. The competition format is a time-limited treasure hunt. Each team will have 5 minutes to navigate an obstacle course, collecting and returning as many score cubes to the starting zone as possible. The team that collects the most score cubes during its 5 minutes will be announced the winner for its league. Additional awards will be given for the most innovative/unexpected design, best repurposing of found parts, best use of autonomous design, and best aesthetics.

We are also thrilled to have the Cape & Islands Workforce Investment Board‘s support by offering a one-time grant to purchase supplies for the following partner schools who decide to participate in the competition.

The Cape Cod Mini Maker Faire is a free, all-ages event featuring community members who come together to display their ideas, projects, and inventions. Our 2016 Faire was our biggest yet, with over 1500 participants and 65 exhibitors.  The 2016 Faire featured our first Cape-wide robotics contest with 15 teams participating, stage performances, and a Swap-o-Rama-Rama clothing upcycling event!  In June, we joined other Maker Faire producers and makerspace leaders from around the country at the White House to help kick off the National Week of Making.  We were very proud to represent the maker movement on Cape Cod and in Massachusetts!

In 2017, we plan to build on this success, and we will need your help!
