NYSCI hosts the annual World Maker Faire in partnership with Maker Media. Maker Faire began in the Bay Area in 2006. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. To honor the legacy of the 1964-65 World’s Fair where NYSCI was founded, we adopted the name World Maker Faire when we hosted our first Faire in 2010.

In 2013, 75,000 people came to World Maker Faire. In addition to the flagship Maker Faire Bay Area, 98 independently-produced Mini and Featured Maker Faires occurred around the world in 2013, including Tokyo, Rome, Santiago, and Oslo.

Maker Faire is a forward-looking gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy sharing what they can do, learning new things, and meeting new people. Maker Faire takes creativity to the masses.

World Maker Faire 2014 takes place September 20-21. For tickets and more information visit makerfaire.com.
