We had a great time at Makerfaire Detroit at the Henry Ford Museum on July 27. We had the opportunity to meet with other maker groups from around the state and make some valuable connections. As a special treat we got to meet the team from eepybird.com, the originators of the 'Coke and Mentos' phenomenon. They fired off a 108-bottle salvo for the event. Another cool maker project was the World's Largest Mousetrap Game from San Francisco (my zany home town). But the most exciting part is just the energy level and tremendous enthusiasm shown by so many people who are committed to personal design, manufacturing and STEM education.
