Fab Lab Grit PopUp Make & Tell September 14th


The Space Coast offers more engineering talent per capita than anywhere else in the United States, which means we get together to solve real problems better than anyone else in the country.

Brevard County residents are invited to test this theory as part of a Make & Tell Sept 14, 6PM to 8PM at Space Coast FabLab. Three generations of makers, hardware, and embedded software designers will share their inventions as part of a kickoff for a new monthly series of meetups.

GRIT Popup and the Space Coast Fablab invite all maker and manufacturing organizations to help lay the groundwork for the 2019 Mini-Maker Faire as part of this series launch. Booths will be made available for free to anyone increasing “maker” awareness in the Space Coast. This is a free event open to kids and adults of all ages.

Members of the Space Coast FabLab say that it is with crowdsourced maker support that the Space Coast may host the most impressive 2019 Mini-Maker Faire in the country. To join the planning team, contact michelle@projectbasedlearning.org to participate.

GRIT Popup is powered by a tribe of creators in Space Coast, Florida. Our projects start with an in-depth interview and podcast and result in a full-sensory, popup dinner and show. Whether you are celebrating a local hero — a historic landmark or new product — we’re here to amplify your story.

How it works.

Each event is inspired by a local community member’s story of grit and success.  Their stories are curated through various mediums of artistic expression.
