Posted at 4:56 PM, Sep 11, 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Creators have been told to get ready as the "Mini Maker Faire" has headed back to Music City.

The one-day critical thinking exhibition has been like a "show-and-tell" of sorts. The big science fair has been set for Saturday at the Adventure Science Center.

The event was set to feature several different fun activities, like power-wheel racing, 3D printing, high altitude ballooning, and more.

Organizers said there will be exhibitors, vendors, panelists, and performers from all over the region. Plus, they added there will also be a robot battle this year.

“It's a lot like a science fair really, but it's more than that because it shows people who are doing crafting, robotics, computer programming, taking recycled items and making them into artistic objects,” said Jeff Krinks, of the Adventure Science Center. “It’s really an eclectic group.”

The Faire has been scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, rain or shine.
