> Have you folks participated in a Maker Faire before? It's certainly not tailored just for kids.Yes! MARCH participated in every year of the World (formerly "New York")
Maker Faire's existence.
The first year, we demonstrated modern hacks for vintage computers.
The second year, we had a much smaller "we're here!" table within a

The third year (last year), we did an Apple 1 replica exhibit, which was

previously made stuff. :)
