Saturday Success!

The 3rd Annual Lakewood Makerfest was held over the weekend and brought 425 people to try out new technologies, interact with a life-sized Dalek and K-9, talk with really creative people in the community, and see 3D printers in action.

Thank you to all the Makers who attended, you are the heart of the event!

Photos will be posted within the next couple of weeks.
