On Feb. 15, from 4-8 p.m., there will be a Mini Maker Faire at the Hannaford Career Center on Charles Avenue in Middlebury. The event, which coincides with the Career Center open house, is a kick-off for a plan to create a local “maker space” at the center. It will be a great opportunity to showcase local makerism, create connections in the local maker web and gauge interest in having the resources of the Career Center available to the community after school. Organizers are looking for makers — local engineer Dave Cole said, “The definition of a maker is very broad and includes just about anything that can be demonstrated at a school” — so if you’re one and want to participate in the faire, contact Dave at mechanicole@gmail.com.
