Education day and first open day at the Maker Faire

Friday there was an education day here at the Maker Faire Rome, a lot of Students and their teacher come to see this magic world of makers. Most of the child, the boys and the girls stop at our booth and are very surprised in seeing all the printed parts, the pac-man, the printed wrench and all the things make in the last weeks by our BadPrinter2. They stare at the printer during the creation of a part and it is exciting to see all this curiosity and passion for these new technologies. We speak to the classrooms and we are happy to share our enthusiasm with them; we hope to be, for them, a good memory of this experience.
Yesterday it was the first day of the Maker Faire open to the public and there was a lot of people, we think about three thousands visitors in one day. A lot of questions and curiosity about our printer and our work and we are extremely happy about this.
We had also interviews with a national TV and a local one, we will link the videos as soon as available.

We are very excited to meet a lot of curious boys and girls that can see closely all the projects that the makers are presenting here and not only 3D printing, but humanoid robots, awesome sculptures, every sort of electronic fun. We are very happy to share our project and participate to this education day with the makers of the future.
