What happens when you gather all of what Silicon Valley represents and fit these amazing individuals into the San Mateo Fairgrounds? The 2016 Maker Fair/San Mateo! Now this is what Silicon Valley is made of! Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. Your junior-high Science fair on steroids.
