New to Maker Faire Fort Wayne, The Goodrich Martians FIRST Robotics Teams, Team 494 The Martians, and Team 70, More Martians will be joining us. They’re bringing parade vehicles they’ve built which include a ʺTime Machineʺ powered by the fuel of the future, ʺBubblesʺ, also incorporates a programmable light disk to help provide for easier time travel (note the Time Machine group was founded in 2098 and has traveled back in time to attend Makers Faire); a ʺCupcake Carʺ is our most delicious vehicle, and a ʺGiant Robot Spiderʺ which is just creepy, scary, and interesting. Please enjoy them all.
Come see adults ride super-fun themed modified kids’ electric cars around straight track and hairpin turns at the Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire – Powered by TekVenture.
