About Maker Faire
Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect, and grow this community. The Children's School is the creative brains and brawn behind Innovator’s Playground, a unique maker space created especially for elementary students. This year, MakeEdu and The Children's School will collaborate to bring The Innovator's Playground (indoor making environment for young makers), the Maker Courtyard (outdoor maker space for large activities) and the Maker Playground (outdoors field designed for larger play activities).
We need volunteers and people to help create activities on Sat., Oct. 1 and/or Sun., Oct. 2, throughout each day. We appreciate you making the decision to come make and play with us!
