In a world obsessed with do-it-yourself activities and life-hack videos, the Maker Faire combines arts, science and tech aficionados in one dynamic setting. The community-organized event brings local inventors, artists, designers and craftsmen – some of whom will sell the items they exhibit – to the Central Florida Fairgrounds in its sixth year of innovative fun. Produced by the Maker Foundation, the fair is not just for science lovers and crafters, but for anyone simply curious about how things work. No need to worry about chasing robots around the grounds; the exhibits are mostly in the air-conditioned indoor exhibit halls. Who knows? The Maker Faire might inspire you to create your own hacks or take that 3-D printing class.

10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday | Central Florida Fairgrounds, 4603 W. Colonial Drive | makerfaireorlando.com | $10-$25
