Collaboration between two students working with the Sierra Makerspaces initiative will benefit the upcoming October 6 Rocklin Mini-Maker Faire, which attracted approximately 8,000 attendees in 2017. Travis and Eric, who are studying Mechatronics and Welding, developed a detailed design concept and fabrication proposal for an art-inspired “Grand Entrance” gateway into the Mini-Maker Faire. The proposal includes a detailed CAD plan, a list of materials, and an estimated cost of materials. Once the structure is reviewed and approved by the College’s Facilities and Operations Department, and approved by the City of Rocklin (the primary organizer of the Faire), Eric and Travis will get to work building the structure. Other students will be recruited to help with low-tech jobs such as painting. Travis has designed a few concepts for a banner, and of course Makey will be included to welcome all to the event!
