Twin Cities Maker played a big part in Make: Day 2010 at the Science Museum of Minnesota, bringing some of its do-it-yourself magic to the local masses.
Sunday, June 21, was a sunny Father’s Day in St. Paul for local makers to show off their stuff. Twin Cities Maker and other local groups and musicians participated in this exciting event which celebrates the ingenuity and inventiveness in our community.
Members of Twin Cities Maker worked together to establish three displays: the Spoonapault, clothesline racers, and a life-sized Operation game.
Make: Day 2010 was just an awesome day for making, sharing and learning, what the Twin Cities Maker organization is all about! A big THANK YOU goes out to Science Musuem of Minnesota staff, who were absolutely fantastic at hosting this event.

We as an organization need to become much more public for many reasons including survival, and Sunday’s event will go a long ways to getting our group some “face time” with others who may be interested.
But to make a good impression, many of our members have been working on displays, projects, and promotions that need to be done to have a successful day. Also there are those who have given up their Sunday afternoon to be there to be our public face.
We all owe these people a thank you, for their time, effort and desire to make the TCMaker group a success. This group thrives or dies on our efforts, and these folks have shown that they want to thrive, so I for one thank everybody for their efforts.
