The first Maker Faire Lake County, a show-and-tell for innovative designers, creators, builders and tinkerers, will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 25, at the College of Lake County's Grayslake Campus.

Other ideas can come from the following areas: science, biology and chemistry projects; electric vehicles; interactive art and technology; kites; puppets; robotics; rockets; or sustainability and green technology. Ideas also can come from digital fabrication, including 3-D printing, computerized numerical control programming and laser technology.
Maker Faire Lake County is part of the college's inaugural Maker Week, April 18-25. Events include the 4-H Robotics Showcase, as well as the Lake County Robotics Competition finals, Big Idea, Jr. competition and a Rube Goldberg Challenge.
