The Roanoke Mini Maker Faire features K-12 makers and is the vision of Tina Coffey from Roanoke County Public Schools. The Science Museum of Western Virginia and the Virginia Society for Technology in Education are partnering to make that vision a reality.
The event is free but registration is encouraged. Learn more at the website.

It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
