You may have heard of Maker Faire. This year, School Maker Faire is coming to Calgary on May 10, 2017. What is School Maker Faire? It is a school age gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, and students. All of these “makers” come to School Maker Faire to show what they have made, or are making, and share what they have learned. It’s a chance for students to show others an area they are really interested in. It can be anything from art to robots, exploding volcanoes to doll dresses. If you can make it with your hands and it’s something original, then it fits in School Maker Faire.
Interested teachers and families are encouraged to find more information in the letters for teachers and students.
The first Calgary & Area School Maker Faire will be taking place on May 10th from 5:30 – 8:30 at Telus Spark.
