About Osijek Mini Maker Faire:
Osijek Mini Maker Faire 2016 is the first ever event of its kind in Croatia. It is being organized by Osijek Software City and #labOs hacklab in partnership with Mono Software and other member companies.
Osijek Mini Maker Faire is fortunate to have the full support of Elektrotehnička i prometna škola Osijek. We will be expecting Croatian and international makers having different interests and background, covering electronics, arts and crafts, student projects, robotics and other science projects.
About Maker Faire:
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. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Silver Spring, Ottawa, Lisbon, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Newcastle, Hannover, Oslo, Trondheim, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Osijek, Croatia.
Maker Faire is supported by Make: magazine and Maker Media.
