Who says we don't make stuff in America anymore? The Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 18, is a celebration of creativity, invention and the maker movement.

More than 60 makers will participate in the free fair, from tinkerers to scientists to homesteaders. The gathering is designed to show and teach — come and see what the makers are up to and pick up a few ideas yourself. Who knew soldering could be so much fun?!

Check out the acrobatics of the DIY Circus, fix broken stuff with the Community Glue Workshop, build an LED flashing thing, and so much more.

The Mini Maker Faire will be at Schurz High School, 3601 N. Milwaukee Ave.
