ELSIE THE DRAGON AND MUCH MORE AT MAKER FAIRE.

THOUSANDS of visitors to Newcastle will this weekend come face to face with a fire-breathing dragon as the Maker Faire takes over the Life Science Centre.

The travelling show, which allows families to get hands-on with everything from robots to rovers, quilts and makeshift musical instruments, arrives in the city today for two days of inspirational fun.

"Maker Faire is a celebration of science in all its forms," said museum chief executive Linda Conlon. "It's imaginative and creative and offers something for everyone - from the self-confessed science geeks to those who are simply curious to find out more and enjoy some fun, off-beat activities." Among the star attractions is giant pneumatic dragon Elsie.
