This event has now passed.
This year the Jinqiao Mini Maker Faire will be returning for its third event in Shanghai. Independently organised, sponsored by Honeywell and hosted at Concordia International School’s Pudong campus, the faire is an opportunity for inventors and creators to display their unique projects. The ‘Makers’ range in age from seven to seventy years old and represent a variety of nationalities. Says David Lyon, one of the event’s organisers, ‘If you have a passion for building and sharing, then we encourage you at attend as either a Maker or an attendee’.
Participants can bring in any kind of item or invention; last year Makers displayed robots, cardboard chairs, chemical concoctions, 3-D printers and more. Since being established nearly 10 years ago, Maker Faire events have turned into a global movement, with a range of international cities regularly hosting Mini Maker Faires. This event is free and open to the public and all are invited to check out the faire, either as a Maker, volunteer or attendee.
