A Playground For Innovators At The New Orleans Mini Maker Faire

Tulane University hosted the second annual New Orleans Mini Maker Faire on Saturday.

Maker Faires are growing in popularity around the country. They’re described as part science fair, part county fair, and “the greatest show and tell on earth.”

While they mainly showcase do-it-yourselfers exploring new technologies, the faires also also draw people experimenting in science, engineering, art, and performance.

A few of the 85 makers at this year's faire talk about their innovations with WWNO's Technology Reporter Janaya Williams.

Tech and Innovation Reporting on WWNO is supported by Bellwether Technologies.
