Make Activities That Suit You. 

World Maker Faire 2016

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.
