Escape Rooms will be joining Makevention this year! They’ll
have an interactive puzzle cube/presentation about how makerspaces accelerate
small businesses. Fun fact: both escape rooms exhibiting at Makevention this year
are members of BloomingLabs!
BloomingLabs puts on Makevention every year, AND we always set up a room to
highlight what’s been going on at our makerspace. Come check us out! We have
some really cools stuff to share this year!
With a Grain of Salt will be a new exhibitor this year! They wire vintage pieces,
charms, and beads onto skeleton keys to create pendants that are made to suit the
customer’s interests and taste. We can’t wait to see their unique designs!
UplandSTEM brings together partners from the nonprofit, public, and private sectors
to prepare Monroe County students for success in science, technology, engineering,
and math. Come check out their exhibit at Makevention to learn more about them!

The Code and Key Escape Rooms will be exhibiting again this year. They will have two puzzle boxes, two large-scale stand-alone puzzles, and potentially other pop-up escape room items.

We absolutely love watching In Case of Emergency Press screen print t-shirts. If you want a Makevention t-shirt, they’ll make you one on site!
