Big gift to be given away at Mini Maker Faire

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - 3D printing is all the rage, but the newest gadget doesn't come cheap.

For the second year, Acadian Robotics has donated a 3D printer that will be given away at the Baton Rouge Mini Maker Faire.

The event is hosted by the East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library and it's a lot like show-and-tell. There are a variety of booths that showcase the interesting and unique things people, or makers, do in this city.

The booths range from crafters to scientists. There's a little something for everyone.

If that wasn't interesting enough, let's toss in a celebrity.

Jamie Hyneman, one of the hosts of the popular show Mythbusters, will be at the event at 1 p.m. for a Q&A session.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Oct. 8, but more importantly, register today for your chance to win a cool new toy. Click here for more information on how to register.
