Manila Maker Faire 2018: Discover the Art and Science behind DIY!
For the second year in a row, the Philippines will be in the global maker map again as The Mind Museum, Make Magazine, and co-presenter 3M Philippines, organize this year’s Manila Mini Maker Faire (MMMF) on June 23-24, 2018 at The Mind Museum. The entrance to this event is free to the public.
The Manila Mini Maker Faire 2018 is dubbed as the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It will have over 70 Makers from all over the Philippines, including Visayas and Mindanao. Projects like paper crafts, upcycled furniture, electronic beatboxes, and a lightweight car body made from abaca will be showcased together with the usual favorites like robots, 3D printing, STEAM education, and so much more!
Attendees can also sign up for a variety of free and ticketed workshops. Workshops such as paper engineering, clay and pottery-making, 3D design, and more will be available for everyone interested to learn new things.
This year’s MMMF also aims to establish a stronger maker community through networking and collaboration with makers from different parts of the country. A special innovation tour, hosted by 3M Philippines, will be held before the Faire to help inspire makers to continue making. This will be followed by a Maker’s Networking Night to give an extraordinary chance for participants to interact with their fellow makers.
