Author Archives: Cedar Rapids Mini Maker Faire
What an awesome day at the Center yesterday! The 3rd Annual Mini Maker Faire greeted 1100 visitors. We are so excited to open the space and bring more maker classes to the community. Thanks to our great speakers Mark Reyland and Jeff Freeland Nelson. The event would not be possible without all of our great sponsors. No words can express the sincere appreciation we have for the countless volunteers who helped to make the event a success and have worked so hard to bring the maker space together. And to all of you who attended and recognize the value of the maker movement, we thank you!
Thanks to all of our great supporters for helping us make Maker Faire happen! Adams Tile and Stone, General Mills, Maggie’s Farms Pizza, Shuttleworth and Ingersoll, Rockwell Collins, Wells Fargo, University of Iowa Community Credit Union, and Zaytoon Mediterranean Grill. See you on the 19th!

Maple One to save the day! Thanks to Americorps NCCC team Maple One who came together at the Center today to complete individual service hours (but they did it as a team, how cool).
