The 4th Annual ISY Mini Maker Fair - 6th April, 2019 9:00 am to 12 Noon

What is a Maker fair?

A Maker Fair is an exhibition where students and adults alike come together to display things that they have designed, engineered or created.  Exhibitors will have a space where they can show off their creations, offer explanations and demonstrations and sometimes allow participants to experience an activity.  We have had authors with their books, students with homemade virtual reality goggles, an adult with Alpine Horns made from plumbing supplies and everything in between. It is a rich and varied experience.

How can I participate?

If you want to come and exhibit your work we'll need to know by Friday March 1st.  We need time to plan where everyone will go and to make sure we have any equipment you need available at your booth.  This might be electrical outlets for instance.  To register your project please fill out the 2019 ISY Maker Fair Form.  Exhibitors will be able to set up their stands from 8:00am.

If you want to come along and just see the show then you're welcome.  The fair will start at 9:00am on Saturday 6th April and run until 12:00 noon.

We look forward to seeing you there!
