ATTENTION: Registration deadline for makers is 18 April!
In 2014, ICTP will celebrate its 50th anniversary. To mark this milestone, the Centre's Science Dissemination Unit is organizing the first Trieste Mini Maker Faire, in collaboration with Maker Media Inc., to be held on Saturday 17 May 2014 at ICTP's Miramare Campus.
Maker Faire is a show-and-tell event where innovators ("makers") can show their creations, present their ideas and share what they are learning with the general public. It is primarily designed to showcase makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies, such as Arduino microcontrollers and personal 3D printing. But it also features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
The goal is to provide a platform for invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and celebrate the "Maker movement". Makers may be tech enthusiasts, crafters, homesteaders, scientists or garage tinkerers.
The Trieste Mini Maker Faire will bring together and uncover makers, inventors, scientists, crafters, artists and all other passionate creative enthusiasts from the Triveneto region of Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria and beyond. While exhibiting their projects, participants will also share their passion for making and inspire visitors to make things themselves. Entrance to the event is free and it is open to everybody.
Updated information and details of the event will be posted on the website: www.makerfairetrieste.it
