A warm welcome to two venerable institutions that are coming to the Faire for the first time–The Oakland Museum and the Lawrence Hall of Science!

Customize with the Oakland Museum. How do we create symbols and logos that reflect our personal style? At the Faire, the Oakland Museum will  bring a project logo and then give you art supplies and a video camera to help you create a stop motion video  that completely changes the logo to reflect your vision.

Build New Circuits with the Lawrence Hall of Science Ingenuity Lab.  Design, build and test your own moving sculpture using hobby motors, batteries, wires, switches and common everyday objects. Learn about basic circuitry while modifying your design and building cool gadgets.  Just take a look at the wicked gleam in the eye of this kid making a pen-yogurt container-robot. Enough said.
