From the infamous garage in Palo Alto to the uprising of local DIY culture, the Silicon Valley has long been a land of inventors, designers, and tinkerers…those who embody the true sprit of the maker movement. Makers fearlessly create, learn by doing, and re-imagine objects and materials rather than throw them away. Our maker day Community Day honors this creative process with unique musical performances, inspired demonstrations, and hands-on art activities for all ages.
