South Lakes High School and Langston Hughes Middle School were filled with people of all ages inventing, exploring and, well, making things at the Nova Mini Maker Faire on Sunday.
The Mini Maker Faire is part of a nationwide movement to encourage innovation and creativity.
The local event was sponsored by Nova Labs, a non-profit Maker Space in Reston. Nova Labs has a regular mission to provide the community a workshop where people can learn, teach, and collaborate on creative and technical works, and to promote the usefulness of competence in the technical arts, says Nova Labs president Brian Jacoby.
Sunday’s event had hands-on booths and activities from more than 100 makers exploring engineering, physics and other science areas, as well as creative crafting.
