About Seattle Mini Maker Faire:
Seattle Mini Maker Faire is going on its fourth year in 2015. This year it is a production of Penny University.
About Maker Faire:
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA in 2006. In 2013 Maker Faire celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900+ makers and 125,000 attendees. The other flagship event—World Maker Faire New York—has grown in three years to include more than 500 makers and 75,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Oslo, Shenzhen and Tokyo are home to “featured” 2014 Maker Faires (200+ makers), while community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are produced both nationally and internationally.
Seattle Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.
