Now taking the Maker Faire stage…

At Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire, every kind of maker and every act of making is on display – including those who make music, explosions set to music and even beer. Don’t miss these performances on Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30 at Cincinnati Museum Center:

preston-charlesPreston Charles III, Make It Happen Music
Preston will perform the violin with two amps to give stereo effect and enhance the experience of the listener hearing what seems like two violins playing in rhythm with one another, when in actuality there is one violin and a loop pedal. He’ll have free pins and info about music in general and Make It Happen Music.
Maker Stage, Cincinnati History Museum South Gallery
11 a.m. Saturday & 1 p.m. Sunday

Ping Pong Explosion
See science explode into action with liquid nitrogen and 1,500 ping pong balls!  What happens when liquid nitrogen boils in a tightly capped bottle? At over 160 pounds per square inch, our bottle suffers a catastrophic failure, releasing over 25,000 pounds of force and launching our 1,500 ping pong balls over 100 feet into the air.

You might know about EepyBird’s extreme Coke and Mentos experiments from their viral videos, The Late Show with David Letterman, Ellen, the Today Show and Mythbusters, to name just a few. And next Saturday, you can catch them live at Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire at Cincinnati Museum Center!

EepyBird will present their renowned Coke & Mentos geyser performance, “The EepyBird Coke Zero & Mentos Spectacular,” at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 in Museum Center’s North Parking Lot.

The performance is a live version of EepyBird’s famous “Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments.” But this show will be even bigger: When Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz don their lab coats and drop 540 Mentos mints into 108 two-liter bottles of Coke Zero, geysers of soda will erupt over 25 feet into the air. They call it “an unbelievable candy-powered version of the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas.” We call that something you won’t want to miss!

Admission to Maker Faire is free for Museum Center Members. Not a Member? Join today or buy an All Museums Pass in advance online to save and to make the most of your Maker Faire experience!
