The experience of a science fair — finding something that you are uniquely interested in exploring deeply for weeks or months, and then sharing what you discover about it — is a great way to learn.
A Maker’s experience at Maker Faire is very similar in this aspect to a student’s at a science fair. Beyond that, Maker Faire celebrates even more — invention, originality, and resourcefulness of any stripe — all while having fun! Engaging, exciting, and full of whimsy, Maker Faire brings together Makers to show what they’ve made and share what they’ve learned with others. Maker Faire rewards curiosity and fosters participation. It combines science and art, engineering and craft, technology and creativity. It’s all about learning how things work, and why. We get to try new things. It’s Science Fair++.
