The Maker Faire is a celebration of local maker culture and community. It is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. India is yet to host such a celebration on a grand scale as a Maker Faire but is headed for one in 2016. As a precursor to it, Workbench Projects in collaboration with NASSCOM is hosting the first ever “Mini Maker Faire” in India.
This year we really want to inspire our youth and support their passions in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts. Part of the STEM+A inspiration comes from bringing together other makers from the community: professionals from multinationals, local business leaders, educators, schools, colleges, universities, hacker spaces and other independent organizations. We aim to make Bengaluru Mini Maker Faire 2015 a community-based learning event that inspires anyone and everyone to become a maker, an event which is engaging, active and above all fun! We encourage any organization who wishes to be a part of fostering new innovations and furthering the maker’s spirit in India to come forward and work with us to make this event a success and spearhead it towards the prestigious Maker Faire next year!
