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 and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in San Diego.

  1. Hey

    Can I showcase a truly innovate android app, or does it have to be Arduino-based?

    • Hey Shashank!
      So if we could get a better idea of what field/problem/feature your android app deals with, that would help us give a more informed decision.
      You can fill out the following form (if you haven’t already) and we’d get back to all the makers with the top 50 makers to be showcased in the maker faire this year!
      Form link: https://goo.gl/forms/0LOzdSIieRWme3uR2 

      Let us know if you are hitting any stumbling blocks in the whole process and we’d sort you out right away!

  2. I had applied as a maker on 22-09-2016. But I have had no response from your side regarding my registration. Therefore I’m confused as to submit another form or not. Please reply at the earliest.

    • Dear Anil,
      We have received your application (and are still in the processing phase) and the results for the shortlisted 50 makers would be out on 10th October, 2016!

  12. This is a query to the organizers.
    I’m with The Ladies Finger Magazine and I was at the event to report on it.

    One of the exhibits was by two girls from Govt. High School, Uttarahalli on Smart Irrigation Systems. The girls were Gunashree and Shravani. I would like to, if possible, speak to them a little more about their project. Is it possible to give me a contact to the school or their guardians, because they seemed to be unsupervised at the event.

  13. It’s definitely possible and a platform like BMMF2016 is aimed at being a meeting of minds and ideas.
    We would love to help out any way we can Sharanya, please do write to us at info@workbenchprojects.com and let’s take it from there!
