If you'd like to exhibit, submit an expression of interest (use the password: inourclassroom) by Wednesday 2 November 2022.
What is a maker faire?
Maker faires are extraordinary 'show-and-tells'. Worldwide, these faires are renowned as festivals of innovation, creativity and resourcefulness that appeal to teachers, families and students of all ages.
Part science fair and part tech expo, maker faires showcase technology, education, science, arts, crafts, engineering, food, sustainability, the making of fun and the growing of new concepts.
The 2019 Monash Mini Maker Faire was a huge success. Exhibitors and attendees alike were full of praise, noting what a great learning opportunity and fun day out the event proved to be.
'It was a fabulous day!' one parent said.
More fun is no doubt in store for the 2022 event, as it makes its triumphant return to our calendar.
