6 Reasons Why You Should Be At the Manila Mini Maker Faire This Weekend!
It's back! The 2nd Manila Mini Maker Faire is set on June 23-24, 2018 at The Mind Museum. Come visit this family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Get to see cool creations like robots and drones! If these aren't enough to convince you to go to the Manila Mini Maker Faire, here are 6 more reasons why you have to be there:
1. Maker Faire is "the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth"!
The first Maker Faire was held in 2006 in California. From then on, more countries joined the global event. In the year 2017 alone, there were over 200 Maker Faires in 38 countries including the FIRST Mini Maker Faire in Manila, Philippines.
Be part of this celebration of the maker movement and encourage the makers to create more projects and come up with new ideas. Who knows, you might be inspired to be a maker yourself!
2. There will be something in the Maker Faire for everyone!
Meet over 90 makers of various backgrounds from all over the Philippines who will exhibit their works. Get to see and interact with awesome ideas and creations from science and technology to arts and crafts - robotics, 3D printing, game design, natural dyeing techniques, woodworks, upcycling, and so much more!
3. The Maker community is all about sharing and doing together.
Be in the company of skilled and interesting people who have amazing stories to tell - from tech enthusiasts, students, artists, hobbyists, crafters, STEAM and STEM advocates, and commercial exhibitors to family-run passion projects and engineers turned entrepreneurs.
Our Makers will be glad to share what they know about flying drones, making your own instrument out of utensils, controlling your appliances via a mobile text, replicating Thor's hammer, 3D printing your face, crafting your own pop-up book, making people laugh with an improv performance, hand-rolling your own water-cleaning mud ball, reinventing science education, and concocting your own coffee and beer.
4. Interact with makers and projects that will inspire new ideas.
Join workshops, participate in hands-on activities, and listen to featured Maker presentations, talks, and demos throughout the Faire weekend.
Develop a new hobby or get inspiration for your next big project!
Ariel Lacsamana, President and Managing Director of 3M Philippines, co-presenter of Manila Mini Maker Faire, shared in a press event that his teenage son picked up not just one, not two, but THREE new hobbies after visiting last year's Faire!
5. Local ingenuity and Filipino artistry shine at the Manila Mini Maker Faire!
