May 7th, 2016   –   Mission Plaza, San Luis Obispo   –  11am-3pm

Calling all Makers and supporters!

We are excited to invite you to take part in the 4th Annual SLO MakerSpace Expo taking place May 7th, 2016 at Mission Plaza from 11am­3pm, and followed by an Open House at SLO MakerSpace from 5­8pm.

The SLO MakerSpace Expo is a celebration of the amazing work of all kinds and ages of artists, crafters, builders, and innovators — anyone who is embracing the do­it­yourself (or do­it­together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Children and adults alike are captivated by the technological, robotic, artistic, and inventive designs on display during this event. Some booths feature hands­on events, others are demonstrations of new or improved technologies.

The SLO Makerspace Expo is an event for the entire family ­ all makers, inventors, dabblers, and dreamers are welcome! During last spring’s highly successful event, more than 2,500 people from throughout the Central Coast came to see and experience more than 40 exhibits.
