Makers from around the region shared their projects with curious and engaged attendees of all ages for Maker Faire Pittsburgh 2015. Drones flew, robots activated, dances were improvised, food was cooked by the sun, books bound, electric cars zoomed about, dinosaurs walked and chocolate robots were molded. Glass, iron, concrete and aluminum was cast and molded – and that’s just a short list of the unique and fun experiences had at the Faire. Not to mention, a wedding proposal made (and accepted!) and a kitten adopted.
