Price: free
The Maker movement has exploded in the public consciousness over the past few years. Circuit-bending, 3-D printing, steampunk: It’s all tied in to a growing subculture of people who get more joy out of building than consuming. This marks the second year that the Orlando Maker Faire has been big enough to be “official” and sponsored by Make magazine, the source for project ideas for people who are way less lazy than the rest of us. This sheer number and diversity of exhibitors at this year’s two-day Faire is astounding. You’ll be able to learn how hard candy or beef jerky are made, watch adults race around on souped-up Power Wheels, build a dinosaur puppet, or pick up any number of artworks, crafts or take-home DIY kits. With more than 250 exhibitors – not to mention all the workshops, talks and panels – you may want to spring for the two-day ticket just so you have a chance to see them all. – Thaddeus McCollum
