Maker Faire Highlights Creativity of Wyoming Residents

May 13, 2016

Hoping to inspire the next great innovator, the University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) has partnered with the second annual Jackson Hole Mini Maker Faire later this month.

Hosted by the Jackson, Wyo., campus of Teton Science Schools, the Jackson Hole Mini Maker Faire will be Saturday, May 21 from noon-4 p.m. The free, family-friendly event celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects and “Do-It-Yourself” mindset.

CEAS K-14 Project Coordinator Teddi Hofmann will run an exhibit to engage participants in making, hacking and tinkering. Hofmann’s aim is “to continue to build and share resources for all makers in the state,” she says. Tonia Dousay from UW’s College of Education also will volunteer at the event.

The aim of the event is to entertain, inform, connect and grow a statewide community. Currently, the event features 20-25 projects from companies and individuals from around the state.
