As the countdown to this year’s Los Angeles Maker Faire + City of STEM Festival ticks away, we’re excited to shine a spotlight on one of the incredible Makers who will be showcasing their innovations. Meet the self-taught Arduino-based, robotics developer, Travis Hughes. Beyond his Maker identity, Travis leads an adventurous life filled with cycling, bouldering, hiking, and exploring the nooks and crannies of forgotten places. His journey into the world of making began with a simple, yet charming, music box project and has since evolved into the creation of “Scarab,” a personal exploration robot designed to navigate and document the unseen beauty of abandoned sites.

Travis embodies the spirit of the Maker movement, stating, “To me, being a Maker means being someone who embraces their creativity, learns from failure, and keeps trying when they do fail.” It’s this ethos that he hopes to share with attendees at the upcoming Los Angeles Maker Faire. Whether you’re a tech enthusiast, a robotics aficionado, or simply curious about the boundless world of making, Travis’ booth promises to be a hub of inspiration and creativity.

Join us in celebrating the ingenuity and perseverance of Makers like Travis, and discover how you, too, can embrace the Maker identity within. Don’t miss your chance to meet Travis in person at the Los Angeles Maker Faire + City of STEM. Reserve your ticket today on Eventbrite and come witness firsthand the incredible potential of tech and robotics to enrich our explorations and creative endeavors.
