The Maker Faire Singapore Learning Passport

One of the primary cornerstones of the Maker Movement is the learning mindset that makers have and which we hope to spread through the Faire. We are therefore very happy to announce an exciting initiative for Maker Faire Singapore 2016, in collaboration with the Lifelong Learning Council and the LearnSG seed fund.
