2015 DaVinci’s Faire and BarCamp was a blast!

DaVinci’s Faire and BarCamp has come to a successful conclusion for 2015, adding to the region’s long list of great un-conferences. This year’s event was held on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday October 12th at the Main Campus of Manatee Technical College. On display in the hall was a great setup of technology and equipment by the Suncoast Science Center and Faulhaber Fab Lab. And let’s not forget the people! They have some great folks working for the Center that were only too eager to show off what they were doing via personal demonstrations of their robots and gadgets. FreeFab 3D had an impressive display of their Monolith 3D Printer. We chatted with the founders and they bring a vast amount of diverse experience and knowledge, particularly from the printing industry. Their passion for making stuff appears to make a great team! If you want to know even more about them, check out their website: http://www.freefab3d.com The Suncoast Makers had an impressive table with all sorts of creations. The ingenuity, hard work, and innovation that hails from this group is nothing short of amazing. Did we mention we love Makers?
