The inaugural DC Mini Maker Faire, initiated and led by members of the AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowships MaDTECHEd affinity group, will be a unique celebration of the Maker movement June 8, 2014.

The DC Mini Maker Faire will showcase local, grassroots Do-It-Yourself (DIY) innovation from individuals and organizations from the community, including federal and local government, non-profits, academia,​ and industry.   The Faire was envisioned as a way to Show (and Tell) the world what DC M​akers have to offer, and includes support from MAKE, LEGO, Intel, Revolution X Design, IdeaSpace DC, The Capitol Riverfront, Digital DC, ShopBot, and local Makers.  Up to 10,000 attendees will have the opportunity to interact with everything from homemade electric go-karts and DIY 3D printers to STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) kits, arts/crafts, and robotics.  Please note that the inaugural DC Mini Maker Faire is independently produced and separate from the upcoming (also first-ever) White House Maker Faire.
