Calling all tech enthusiasts, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science club members, authors, artists, students, entrepreneurs, crafter, and makers of any kind—join us this November for the 3rd annual Mini Maker Faire!

Once again, we’ve partnered with Maker Media, creators of Make: Magazine and Maker Faire to host our own all-ages celebration of the maker movement, Mini Maker Faire, at select Barnes & Noble stores nationwide* on November 11 and 12 from noon to 4 p.m. local time! We’ll learn from each other, hear from experts, and work on projects together.

At this year’s event, you’ll have a chance to participate in:

Make Workspace

Experience the latest in virtual reality, designing, robotics, coding, programming, and more.

Meet the Makers

Hear from leaders and top brands about the latest trends in designing, building, creating and making.

Make & Collaborate

Immerse yourself in the process of “ideating,” creating and constructing with a vast array of materials ideally suited for making anything possible!

If you can’t make it to the store for the event, never fear: we’ve got a ton of ideas to get your creative juices flowing at home, too! Check out our Make & Collaborate projects here.
