Do-It-Yourself Science: The Maker Faire

It's been called "Burning Man for science geeks." The annual Maker Faire attracts thousands of amateur inventors and scientists, displaying their home-made prototypes and gadget hacks. In a world where the technological race is speeding up, the Maker movement has revealed that the do-it-yourself culture is in no danger of dying out.

Here's a story on the Maker movement, magazine and Faire, which first aired in Sept. 2007, produced by KQED for its QUEST science series.
