Our blog has been a bit slow recently, but many things are going on at 757 Labs. The biggest thing is we're bringing a Mini Maker Faire to Norfolk!

The Norfolk Mini Maker Faire is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local DIY science and technology, robots, arts, crafts, and music.

We've reserved the expo hall of the Norfolk Scope on October 20th, 2012. We've also reserved the outside plaza for addition fun including things that involve fire (Glass blowing, bamboo bicycle building and other great things.)

Registration is free for both attendees and makers! Please help us by registering on Eventbrite. This also enters you into a contest to win some great gifts from the Makershed. Link is on the official website linked below.

If you're interested in getting space as a maker, please fill out the form linked from the Maker tab on the official website.

If you're interested in sponsoring the Norfolk Mini Maker Faire (The Norfolk Scope isn't free to use) the sponsor levels and benefits are available from the Sponsors tab on the official site.

Thanks to Make Magazine for extending the ability to host a Mini Maker Faire, and thanks to everyone who helps spread the word, attends, sponsors and participates.

  1. Looking forward to this event, it appears to be getting alot of traffic. Quite impressed that this is the 1st event that I know of to be held in Virginia and Hampton Roads. The site is the Norfolk Scope Arena, it should be quite a good turnout. Glad to see events like this where people can show case their own DIY Maker Gifts to everyone and people can learn and network with other people that they might of not ever had the chance to meet otherwise. I know alot of people have put in alot of time, and resources to make this event happen. I am hoping that it will be a huge success and continue on for many years. Events like these help in rebuilding hampton roads. Special thanks to all the vendors, volunteers, and attendees for making this event one to remember!
