Maker Faire Recap

TexLUG-Houston provided a variety of LEGO(R) displays at the Houston Mini Maker Faire, November 12-13.  Models included an 8′ working crane, a detailed USS Constitution with hand-tied rigging, and a large classic space layout.  In addition, Texas Brick Railroad helped out with a train and town layout.

Kids and adults were able to build with Minecraft-themed play brick, and a fund-raising activity allowed participants to help a local children’s hospital and take home a holiday ornament.

A total of 17 members of TexLUG-Houston and Texas Brick Railroad attended over the weekend.  Several thousand public visitors enjoyed not only the LEGO area, but the entire Faire.  The Mini Maker Faire is an annual event which lets makers of all kinds show off their skills and products.
