IEEE at the Rochester Maker Faire



The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.

The 6th Annual Maker Faire Rochester event takes place on Saturday, November 23, 2019, from 9 am to 5 pm at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. The day will be filled with exciting exhibitions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities for all ages. 

This celebration of the DIY spirit and creativity in the heart of Downtown Rochester is a full-on community festival with attractions, exhibits, demonstrations, and performances showcasing the intersection of science, technology, arts, and crafts -- many of them immersive and interactive.

Maker Faires expose attendees to technology, art, science, and engineering applied to projects that are built within the greater Rochester area and beyond. At the faire, attendees will learn to solder, make crafts, interact with physics experiments, and participate in other hands-on activities. We are hoping to inspire everyone who attends to go out and learn what it takes to create their own projects from what they learned and saw during the day.
