On Saturday, March 31, we’ll be holding the very first Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire, and Learning is for Everyone (LI4E) is very excited to be bringing this wonderful festival of the inventive spirit to the Tampa Bay area! Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire fits in perfectly with our mission to support the Curiosity Driven Life in the service of inspiring the lifelong love of learning that we all need in order to live intentionally, meaningfully and successfully in the 21st century.
Tampa Bay Mini Maker will be a family-friendly event showcasing both established and emerging local “makers.” We’ll have be showcasing everything from machines, to DIY science and technology, alternative energy efforts, unique hand-made crafts, music and food, and educational workshops and installations.
We’ll be holding this one of a kind event at a one of a kind facility, the beautiful University Area Community Center Complex on 22nd Street North, in Tampa. Owned by Hillsborough County and operated by the University Area Community Development Corporation, Inc. the center is a 50,000 square foot collection of classrooms, offices, a fitness center, multi-purpose gymnasium, auditorium with stage, music and art studios, computer labs, daycare facilities, and more for area residents who enjoy free access to everything from childcare to the cultural arts in this state-of-the-art facility.
