- Sam Pierce, a Senior at Casco Bay High School, is hosting a Mini MakerFaire on Saturday, May 25th from 10:00am to 1:00pm. He has an audience from which to draw visitors from but needs Makers for the Faire. What is a Maker? A Maker is someone who explores the possibilities of what they can dream up and build using their minds and tools, and the minds and tools of their friends. A garage inventor, sculptor, artist, and many other possibilities. What is a MakerFaire?
A Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture. In its simplest form, Maker Faire creates conversations with Makers. It is a show-and-tell format for people of all ages that brings out the “kid” in all of us. Maker Faire is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in their local community. Yet, Maker Faire is a “fair” which should be fun and engaging. A Maker is someone who explores the possibilities of what they can dream up and build using their minds and tools, and the minds and tools of their friends. A Mini MakerFaire is an independently organized MakerFaire.What a MakerFaire is not: Maker Faire is not a trade show. It’s primarily an opportunity for people to share ideas and projects. So Maker Faire is non-commercial in nature, in that MakerFaire doesn’t want it dominated by traditional sales and marketing. Instead, it hopes to create authentic interactions that satisfy each person’s interests. At the same time, it’s not anti-commercial. MakerFaire is grateful to have businesses as sponsors. Faire’s also allow makers to show their work and offer items for sale. MakerFaire wants to help makers succeed in starting a business, if that’s their goal. However, the sale of items should not change the look and feel or spirit of the event.Maker Faire should not be become a platform for politics or religion.Casco Bay High School will be the venue for the event (196 Allen Ave.) There are 2,475 sq. ft. available the space is frequently used for events such as this. There are also four classrooms, a kitchen and another 5,000 sq. ft. of over flow space available which is used for the school’s 50 plus vendor Craft Fair. The school has ample parking, and is handicap accessible.The event is meant to be a learning environment for both the public and Portland’s youth. It is going to be a free event for the public, and Makers will be allowed to sell their items. Makers may be charged a small fee depending the amount of funding available for the event.The Makers for this event can be of a wide range: Engineers, scientists, crafters, artists, inventors, and assorted Makers who don’t fit into any category.For additional information, questions, or a desire to participate as a Maker in this event, you can contact Sam Pierce at: email@example.com
