Maker Mania #10: Mosaic Architects, Boxwood Pinball, Colorado MESA, Innovation Center

The Faire is upon us, dear Boulderites, Boulderinos and various surrounding Boulderphillics! Or at least it will be upon us come Jan 31 – Feb 1 at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. And that means MAKERS galore! Join us here in the next few weeks as we preview the awesomeness that will be at the core of the Faire.

Mosaic Architects: Big thanks from Maker Boulder to Mosaic Architects of Boulder and San Francisco for sponsoring our Keva Block building station. If you haven’t seen Keva, you really should. Thanks to Mosaic, we’ll have 10,000 planks on hand for a massive design-and-build extravaganza!

Boxwood Pinball: An artist collaboration gone wild! All wood pinball machines based on board game rules and fun. There is no glass on our games to separate you from creating and learning. Interactive games meant to foster the social nature of collaboration and competition. Boxwood will have a few of our wooden pinball machines on hand to play. There is a lot to learn, from our newton’s cradle ball launcher to our pin and cam flippers, there is a lot of science packed into a very fun package.

Colorado MESA: Oh yes, there will be an egg drop! And it will be coming from one of the most awesomest organizations in Colorado, namely Colorado MESA. The MESA program is a premier educational resource and experiential program, serving students in grades P-12. MESA’s mission is to increase the numbers of economically disadvantaged and at risk students who graduate from high school fully prepared for post secondary education in engineering, mathematics, science, computer science, business, and other math- and science-based fields.

Innovation Center of the St. Vrain Valley School District: Hands-on activities about STEM, innovation, robotics, computer science and more.
