Maker Faire Orlando
at Orlando Science Center
Saturday & Sunday, September 13 & 14, 2014
Maker Faire Orlando 2014 will be a two day event!
Maker Faire Orlando is an annual community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
The individuals behind these exhibits are known as “Makers” and they range from tech-enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. Makers are of all ages and come from many backgrounds. They all share a love for innovation and creativity, as well as an educational spirit to inspire and encourage new Makers. Maker Faire Orlando features displays and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
This year's event will feature many of the amazing Makers from our 2012 and 2013 events, new Makers from within our community AND an additional 7,500 square feet of exhibit space!
