Experience Innovation at Maker Faire

group of people honoring a shrine of sorts

Enter the world of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) technology and get into the local entrepreneurial spirit of things at the upcoming 10th Annual Maker Faire in neighboring San Mateo. From robotic things and flying things to digital things and cardboard things, this May 17-18 event at the San Mateo County Event Center is the epicenter of what has become a worldwide tinkerer's movement, with Maker Faires now spreading across the globe. It's like a somewhat more productive take on Burning Man. Here, just down the road from your hotel near Stanford University, there will be reps from many of the area's leading companies and schools. Even if you don't have a brilliant idea in mind, don't miss this advanced look at what Silicon Valley is capable of.

Address: 1346 Saratoga Dr., San Mateo
