Geeks of all ages and persuasions gather at Union Station (30 West Pershing Road, 816-460-2020) 9:30 a.m.–7 p.m. today (and 9:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Sunday) to swap ideas and show off handiwork at Maker Faire
, which drew 130 presenters to last year's inaugural event — equal parts science, craft and state fair. This year, more than 275 makers exhibit hands-on projects such as souped-up, adult-friendly Power Wheels, handmade jewelry, dancing robots, artisan foods, and Tesla coils that play music.
