School Maker Faire


School Maker Faire is coming to Calgary on May 10, 2017 hosted at the TELUS Spark Science Centre

What is School Maker Faire? It is a school age gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, and students. All of these “makers” come to School Maker Faire to show what they have made, or are making, and share what they have learned. It’s a chance for students to show others an area they are really interested in. It can be anything from art to robots, exploding volcanoes to doll dresses. If you can make it with your hands and it’s something original, then it fits in School Maker Faire.

Maker Faire Calgary returns October 28 & 29, 2017 at the Spruce Meadows Equi-Plex
