Charlotte's First 'Mini Maker Faire' / The Blumenthal's Breakin' Convention
The “maker movement” started about 10 years ago and is the ultimate in the recycling of discarded or broken electronic equipment. But it’s more than that. It’s a trend that repurposes these random pieces into something new and useful. We hear about Charlotte’s first “Mini-Maker Faire” in the first part of the program.
