We are now Maker Faire Long Island!
Celebrating our 5th Annual Maker Faire on June 6th, 2020. Formally the Eastern Long Island Mini Maker Faire we are no longer a Mini Faire and have grown to regional Faire, the Maker Faire Long Island!
The maker festival is a celebration of innovation and invention on Long Island and beyond. Bringing over 2000 people together to share in a full day event that focuses on the creative spirit in the areas of STEAM as an inspiration to children and adults alike.
Our Faire is part of the larger Maker Faire brand associated with the Faires in New York City, The Bay Area, Berlin, Barcelona and other cities throughout the world that celebrate creativity and innovation in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
The Maker Movement is a term that refers to the growing community of independent artisans, technologists, and people from all walks of life who create new products, technologies, processes, and ideas. The maker movement has given rise to makerspaces -- places in public or private areas where interested “makers” congregate and share ideas and equipment. The Explorium is a makerspace, and ours is offered to the community based on a constructivist pedagogy.
