From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, the IDEA Week Maker Faire is a venue for South Bend-Elkhart “makers” to show off their hobbies, experiments, projects. We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Glimpse the future and get inspired!

The Maker Faire is coming back to South Bend! The second annual South Bend Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for April 22nd, 2018 which, is day two for IDEA Week. The Maker Faire will once again be held at Success Academy South Bend. Maker Faire combines the traditional science fair, with innovation and engineering, capitalizing on the Maker movement for something entirely new.

Featuring both established and emerging local “makers,” the South Bend Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring: rockets and robots, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, local food, and educational installations. Visitors will experience installations from the local, regional Makers, innovators, and tinkerers.

Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. “Makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. The Faire is part science fair, county fair, and something entirely new.

The call for makers is now open through March 30th. Any group or individual interested in participating in this inaugural event should complete the application at MakerFaireSB.com.
