      Dear Ms. Caldwell,
      Our Advetising and Maker Relations representative, Donna Owen, reached out to you last week in regard to your request for more information. The Meridian Mini Maker Faire is a licensed event and is for Makers and visitors of all ages. One of our youngest Makers, Nelson Kimbrough, a 12-year-old homeschooled student, will be presenting an electrical demonstration. Ross Collins Vocational Robotics program (10th-12th graders) is participating this year with their fire rescue robot and their aquatic robot. We would be very interested in having the your two students come and bring their robot that helps autistic students. We have Makers on up to age 80. Each Maker is featured on our website, but they are also connected with the international Maker Faires through Maker Media. We hope to attract 1,500 visitors from around the region this year. Hope this information helps.
      Thank you,
      Greg Hatcher
