Come with your kids to Maker Faire Singapore 2015

There is many things happening at Maker Faire Singapore to wow families and kids. Join the Faire to see some of the awesome projects that this year’s Makers have put together.

See how some of the families in Singapore have inculcated the Maker Mindset as part of their everyday lives. This year, we are launching the Busy Hands, Happy Hearts book as part of the Faire. The book interviews fifteen families including the family of Scientist turned Artist Isabelle Desjeux and self published writer Don Bosco, creating snippets of how families work together to benefit from and contribute to the Maker movement.

A number of these families are taking up booths at Maker Faire Singapore – so drop in and have a chat with Annabel of Luv and Co, Chinmay and Sayanee at the HackerspaceSG booth, Wai Him and his family at the Know What’s OK (Kowk family) space. Get inspired by some of the projects that they have worked on together, which you can do at home just as easily.

It is also prideworthy to note that a number of schools have come on board Maker Faire Singapore. Find out how the local Educational Institutions have embraced the Maker movement and the learning opportunities it offers.
