(There are days until Maker Faire Milwaukee!)

    The Daleks are Coming!

    Daleks

    If you're keeping track (like we are) there are still 234 days until Maker Faire Milwaukee, and that's fine with us, because it just means that Dalek Asylum Milwaukee has more time to build more Daleks!

    Haven't heard of the Dalek Asylum Milwaukee? Our friends at Milwaukee Record have the Dalek Scoop!

    If you happen to stop by Milwaukee Makerspace for the Maker Faire Milwaukee Planning Meeting, you can probably get an in-person sneak peek at a few of the Daleks. While they seems a bit scary, they don't mind having their photos taken.

    Maker Faire Producers' Summit

    The Crew

    Hello, Milwaukee! Three of our Maker Faire Milwaukee Producers were able to attend the Maker Faire Producers' Summit held in San Francisco this past weekend.

    We were able to connect with people from around the world to find out how they run their Maker Faires, and to share what we know about doing it in Milwaukee the first two years.

    We also got to talk to the crew at Maker Media, and gave them feedback, and got lots of great advice. (We also got a tour of American Steel Studios and got a sneak peek at MegaBots!)

    We're excited for 2016 and brought back a ton of ideas about how to make our Faire bigger and better than before! If you're interested in helping with the planning, get in touch with us at volunteer@makerfairemilwaukee.com

    Fired up for 2016!

    2016!

    We're getting Fired up for the next Maker Faire Milwaukee! Mark your calendars now because it's happening September 24th & 25th, 2016.

    Sure, we're still more than eight months away from the event but the planning committee has been busy with preliminary discussion about what we'd like to do for 2016.

    Bigger and better than last year? That's the plan! If you're interested in attending Maker Faire Milwaukee, add it to your calendar now! (And if you're interested in helping plan the event, get in touch with us!)
