SCRANTON -- It's billed as the greatest "show and tell" on Earth. Johnson College's second annual Mini Maker Faire was held Saturday and Scranton.

The makers are scientists, engineers, musicians, or crafters.

The faire at the school along North Main Avenue gives them a chance to show their creations to the public.

Visitors tinkered with countless inventions and experiments.

The makers were thrilled with attendance.

"And just being the second year we're already getting people coming back saying, 'I was here last year and enjoyed it so much.' They're getting a lot out of this it's really heartening to see kids engage at a very young age into this kind of technology," said Frank Lyter, Lehigh Valley Maker Spaces.

The money raised at Saturdays event goes to a Johnson College fund supporting innovative projects.
