In 2015, KID Museum hosted the largest Maker Faire in the DC region, attracting over 15,000 people for a fun-filled day highlighting the creative energy and maker spirit in our region. Last year more than 90 exhibitors, aged 9 to 92 came out to demonstrate their craft and inventions. Exhibitors ranged from “professional makers” from federal agencies such as NASA, NOAA, NIH, US Patent and Trademark Office Exhibitors to local high school robotics clubs and individual garage scientists and enthusiasts.
Notably, the event attracted a younger and more diverse audience than the typical Maker Faire. For most people, it was their first time attending a Maker Faire, and in the follow-up survey people reported that the number one reason for coming to the event was to expose their children to science, technology, engineering, and math concepts.
Maker Faire Silver Spring is a great way for your organization to connect with this family market and the Silver Spring community.
Maker Faire Silver Spring is presented by KID Museum. The Faire is made possible by support from our generous sponsors: Montgomery County, Make Magazine, Discovery Communications, Hess Construction + Engineering, Activity Rocket, JBG Companies, Tower Companies, Lockheed Martin, Maker Bot, Reynolds Advanced Materials, WSSC, and Montgomery College and media partners: ABC7/WJLA, WTOP and The Washington Post.
