The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth!

NYSCI hosts the annual World Maker Faire New York in partnership with Make: Media. 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 one in 2010. Maker Faire is a celebration of invention, creativity and curiosity. Attendees get immersed in maker culture with over 800 exhibits, performances, big art and spectacle, hands-on making and learning — all showcasing the creative and experimental minds who make, play, tinker and hack. The two-day event features robotics, science, cosplay, electronics, tools and much more.

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. In 2014, 85,000 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, including Tokyo, Rome, Santiago, and Oslo.
