Maker Faire Newcastle 12th – 13th March
This was my first Maker Faire and took place over two days with set up the day before. The event was very professionally run and we were extremely well looked after. Each day saw a huge number of visitors and we were kept very busy answering questions about our ROV build. Many people young and old enjoyed playing with the Micro ROV’s we had taken with us.
