Volunteers needed!

As the Louisville mini Maker Faire gears up for our 2016 Faire, we have an immediate need for volunteers this Saturday (May 14th) to work with us at the Louisville Free Public Library’s How to Festival!
The gang from Maker Faire will be offering classes on:

We will also be making and operating Trebuchets and Catapults, and having some fun with circuits.

We have instruction sheets, tools, parts … and experts will be there to help you and the kids.
Interested? Email to sign up for part of the day (or all if you have the stamina!)

And if you don’t have time to volunteer – drop by to see us or take one of the awesome classes being offered at the Main Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library.
