Event Details

Join us for the 8th Annual Baton Rouge Mini Maker Faire, family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, & resourcefulness! This year’s weeklong hybrid event, lasting October 18 - 23, will celebrate makers, library makerspaces, & folks with a passion to learn new skills through interactive workshops, grab & geaux crafts, an outdoor maker market, a showcase of robotics excellence, and a celebration of terrible robots fighting sumo style!

We'll end the event week with a sumo-style robot fight called "Hebocon!" Hebocon comes from the Japanese word “Heboi” which means “clumsy, unskillful, bungling, poor, and bad," so this competition is all about creating terrible robots for fun! All Hebocon “robots” will be comprised of recyclable materials, torn apart toys, and random electronics put together by YOU the public. No experience with robotics? No problem! This event is geared towards folks that have NO EXPERIENCE with robotics and all “high tech” robots will be graded on a curve. Can't make it in-person?
