MakerFest was a blast!
454 people braved the rain to explore and be inspired by Makers in our community.
Were you inspired to start a new project?
Hope to see you all again next year!
We have some great Maker presentations and workshops scheduled at MakerFest. See the descriptions below.
3-4 pm – SpaceWorks Tacoma
Local author and illustrator Megan Kelso will be at MakerFest!
Discover the weird and wonderful elements of comics. Megan explains how she uses memory, her own life, research, and photo references to create sequential panels that evoke the feeling of a specific, inhabited world.
Making Comics with Doodles and Diagrams
This hands-on workshop is for people who would like to make comics—but don’t know where to start.
A highlight of MakerFest is the opportunity to visit the Pierce College Science Dome, a unique digital planetarium, and see a FREE show!

From a habitat hidden deep underwater in Florida, to the world’s most amazing swimming pool, dive into the underwater world of outer space! Space School is the incredible story of how astronauts train underwater to live and work in space.
From microgravity simulation at NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab, to living under the sea at Aquarius Reef Base, astronauts spend a lot of time training underwater. Space School is a fascinating and beautifully filmed live-action dome film produced by the Emmy award-winning team that produces Jonathan Bird’s Blue World.
