We had a great time hosting DaVinci's Faire and BarCamp! We had plenty of talks, board games, displays of science and inventions, engineering and robotics, multiple drones zipping around, smoking swords and more.

We even had a flying monkey (see photo)! Who says you need to travel to Oz?

If you didn't make it to this year's DaVinci's Faire and BarCamp, we welcome you to next year's event!
