Love putting things together or have a creative spirit? If this sounds like you or someone you know, you should get geared up and attend the Maker Faire! It takes place on October 15-16, 2016 at the Aberdeen Pavilion on Exhibition Way from 10 am to 5 pm.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth. Part science fair, part county fair, the Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness while celebrating the Maker Movement. The goal of this event is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
There is something for everyone to enjoy at the Maker Faire. Makers range from these areas of expertise:
• Tech enthusiasts
• Garage tinkerers
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100 makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Silver Spring, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Hannover, Oslo, Trondheim, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), Shenzhen and now Ottawa are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
