Makers to Descend on Campus for 3rd Annual Kent State 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 third annual Kent State University Mini Maker Faire® on Friday, April 8, from noon-4 p.m. The Mini Maker Faire is another example of how Kent State is fostering the talent and creativity of its well-developed maker culture.
Developed in collaboration with the College of the Arts, the Fashion School’s TechStyle LAB, the College of Architecture and Environmental Design, University Libraries and LaunchNET Kent State, the Kent State Mini Maker Faire 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, which will take place in the Kent State University Library and on Risman Plaza, 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 visit http://makerfairekent.com. Applications are currently being accepted.
Maker Faire is 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 and garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. More than 100 Maker Faires are held annually around the world. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow communities.
