School Maker Faires are collaborative, innovative, generative, and fun. These in-school events celebrate invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Students can show what they’ve made and share what they’ve learned with others—a great match for any educational community. In short, develop thinkers and doers with the skills to excel in and innovate the future.
School Maker Faire organizers can be teachers, parents, administrators, and even students. “Makers” are primarily students—individuals, clubs, classes, or groups.
The result of a School Maker Faire? A student body bursting with creative invention and excited to get more into making and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
If you are hoping to develop a multi-school, city-wide, or regional event, or are a university or other post-secondary institution, please fill out our Maker Faire Interest Form or submit an application to produce a Community Maker Faire.
