Anode Sponsors the 2015 Nashville Mini Maker Faire

BY Jeff Peden

Anode supports Nashville's tech enthusiasts, hobbyists, tinkerers and crafters for a third year in a row.

The Nashville Mini Maker Faire is an annual gathering of local and regional makers who showcase their do-it-yourself (DIY) projects and innovations in an expansive exhibition. From costuming to creative knitting, robot-building to car and cycle modding, the Faire assembles a cross-section of interests with the common theme of science and creativity.


Last year’s event brought everything from fully functional R2D2s and Daleks to 3D puzzles created by CNC machines, origami, jewelry and more. This year’s Faire will include a large-scale Power Racing Series exhibition race, which features kid-size, adult-driven electric vehicles that are modified for high performance and speed.

In a movement sweeping across the country, Maker Faires have brought more visibility to the DIY mindset that often takes place only in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. This maker movement has been a transforming force in innovation, culture, and education.

The 2015 Nashville Mini Maker Faire is presented by Adventure Science Center and MakeNashville and is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc. Sponsored by Anode Inc., Metro Nashville Arts Commission, USCutter Inc., The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Dana Holding Corp., Jive!, NovaCopy, Emma, Lightning 100 and The Terrace Catering.
