The San Francisco Middle School Maker Faire takes its form each year by assembling the unique talents and interests of our students, families and local community.   The overall theme may change year to year, but the folks who come will learn by doing, make new connections and leave inspired!

Learn by doing:  Enjoy plenty of opportunities for hands-on DIY
Make new connections:  Experience genuine community building through person to person sharing, teaching and learning.
Leave inspired:   Have fun, try something new and take these ideas home with you.
This year we will highlight S.T.E.A.M. which celebrates innovation and creation across the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Music. (ok, it really it stands for Math.. but we are taking some creative liberties here).

We are looking forward to collaborating with you!

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 2014 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 1000+ maker exhibits and 120,000+ people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 75,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Rome, Oslo, Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), and Shenzhen are the home of “featured” 2014 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and almost 100 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.


About MAKE Magazine:

MAKE is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects. MAKE unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. Besides the magazine and the faire, MAKE is:

  • a vital online stream of news and projects,;
  • a retail outlet for kits and books, the Maker Shed;
  • a steady stream of fun and instruction via our YouTube channel;
  • Make: Projects, a library of projects with step-by-step instructions
  • a publisher of best-in-category titles via Make: Books, including introductions to electronics, Raspberry Pi, 3D printing, Arduino and more.
