Virginia Tech Maker Festival next Saturday in Falls Church alerted me to the fact that the Virginia Tech Makers Festival is next Saturday in Falls Church.

It looks like there will be a lot of hands on fun and learning for kids interested, or whose parents want to get them interested, in science, technology and making things.

From their website :
Join Virginia Tech and 4-H at the Virginia Tech Maker Festival! This is a day full of creativity, engineering, and resourcefulness where you can learn to make just about anything, such as natural dyes, play dough circuits, LED paintbrushes, t-shirt jewelry, robots, rockets, and more. 
Demonstrations throughout the day will showcase the broad range of inventiveness that exists in our community. Explore the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and design at this family fun event!
