16 & 17 August 2014
At the Canada Science and Technology Museum
1867 St Laurent Blvd, Ottawa, ON
10AM – 5PM
The innovation laced through the capital region is impressive, and the Ottawa Maker Faire is a chance to connect creative people from all across the region in a celebration of the DIY spirit. On the weekend of August 16 and 17, 2014, Artengine and the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation will co-present the fourth annual Ottawa Mini Maker Faire at the Canada Science and Technology Museum
The rise of the maker (or is it the revival of making) is an exciting global movement. Not content with a passive relationship to technology, many people are unpacking the mystery of the tools around them. From simple craft projects to complicated interactive tools, makers are playful, curious and creative and the Ottawa Maker Faire showcases some of the best projects around! The maker movement has become a global phenomenon, with Maker Faires taking place everywhere from Europe to China to the White House. Last year, the Ottawa Maker Faire was recognized as the fastest growing Faire in the world.
This family-friendly event will bring together enthusiasts across the spectrum of technology, from high to low. Robot makers, 3D printer enthusiasts, engineers, and aviation specialists will join knitters, woodworkers, and solderers to put on an expo that will inspire, teach and entertain. The Ottawa Maker Faire brings together families and individuals who celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, sustainability, and science and those who embrace the DIY spirit. At Ottawa Maker Faire, the focus is on the process of making – not just the finished product. Follow us on Twitter for updates.
