Sydney Mini Maker Faire 15-16 August Powerhouse Museum Featured


This weekend Sydney is hosting a Mini Maker Faire event at the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo promising 3D printing, laser harps, invention and much, much more!

A celebration of the ‘Maker’ movement will be underway this weekend at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, on the 15th and 16th of August from 10am to 5pm.

Dubbed the ‘Sydney Mini Maker Faire’ its organisers say it will be ‘the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth’, with a ‘family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness.’

The event is actually to the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences at the Powerhouse for the third successive year, and also as part of the inaugural Sydney Science Festival.

Organisers promise that ‘there will be 3D printers, 3D scanners and 3D people. Chiptunes, a giant game of Pac Man and pianos made from bananas.

‘Sculptures that can literally read your mind, award-winning paper planes and giant origami.

‘There may even be a laser harp, but you’ll have to come to Sydney Mini Maker Faire to find out!’

So, besides stunning family fun of an innovatively interactive order, what is the aim of the Mini Maker Faire?

We’re told it is to ‘showcase Sydney’s most innovative makers and to grow this community. Makers ranging from tech enthusiasts and crafters to scientists and garage tinkerers, of all ages and backgrounds, come together to show what they are making and share what they are learning.’

Besides eye-popping displays of the stuff digital dream are made of, the event also promises an ‘exciting program of talks, stalls and performances, and more space for stallholders than ever before.’

What you see when you attend is Sydney’s biggest and best Faire yet!

The adult ticket price is $15 for a one-day pass, or $22 for a two-day pass.

A concession ticket is $8 per a one day pass or $12 for a two day pass.

The event is being held at the Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris St, Ultimo NSW 2007.
