Momentum | Saturday, September 15

Be part of Toledo's first Mini-Maker Faire! We're excited to partner with the Imagination Station Toledo to bring this showcase of creativity, arts and technology to the Momentum Festival on September 15, 2018. Other Maker Faires around the country have featured handmade crafts; cutting edge technology, unconventional tools or equipment, training courses in fringe skill sets, architecture and design sessions, music, science, art, and more. As a volunteer you'll provide event help as needed with maker breaks, water, and helping showcase a project as well as answer questions from the public regarding the attractions and fill any additional roles that may arise as the event unfolds. This is a fun and fast-paced event! Event day volunteers need to be be 18+ years of age, have a positive, friendly attitude, be focused, and be able to work both independently and in efficient teams to execute assignments. You will likely be on your feet a lot, surrounded by fascinating and curious people, machines, and projects!
