The fifth annual Mini Maker Faire Honolulu was great fun!  We had a few new things like Makers expanding to ‘Iolani’s Seto Hall, live streaming of the drone races, and lightsaber build classes.  We had representatives from Oahu, Maui, and Kauai.  Makers ranged from established companies, Makerspaces around the state, students from elementary up to high school, and individual Makers.  All sharing their knowledge, passion, and vision.  The reason we were able to run this event and make it free for Makers and attendees is due to our fantastic sponsors.  ‘Iolani School was a fantastic host as always.  Providing the amazing Sullivan Center and allowing us to expand into Seto Hall and all the logistical support we needed.  The continued generous donation from HTDC allows us to bring in Makers from the other islands and allows us to provide the various classes at no cost to the attendees.  Sky eFiber stepped in and gave us the internet speed we needed to live stream the drone races.  And of course, Makezine, the parent organization for the Maker Faires around the world.   If you, or your company would like to partner with Mini Maker Faire Honolulu and support the Makers in Hawaii, please let us know.
