Kent Area Makers Prepping for Fourth Annual Mini Maker Faire
Makers across all disciplines, from art and design to technology and science, will once again have the opportunity to exhibit and discuss their unique talents at the fourth annual Kent State Mini Maker Faire on Friday, April 14, from noon-4 p.m.
The Mini Maker Faire is a prime example of how Kent State University is fostering the talent and creativity of its well-developed innovation ecosystem and maker culture, says Zach Mikrut, program manager for LaunchNET Kent State.
The Kent State Mini Maker Faire was developed in collaboration with University Libraries, LaunchNET Kent State, the College of the Arts and the College of Architecture and Environmental Design. The event offers a venue for students, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as the greater Kent community, to exhibit their work, explore new technologies and creative processes and talk firsthand with makers while sharing information and resources.
The event takes place in the Kent State University Library and is free and open to the public. Individuals interested in participating and exhibiting at the Maker Faire or who wish to learn more about the event can find more information here. Applications for exhibiting makers are currently being accepted.
Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to share hobbies, experiments and projects. More than 115 Maker Faires are held annually around the world. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow communities.
