Mini Maker Faire

May 4, 2019 - 10:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Children's Museum of Bloomsburg

The Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire is a one-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset.  It's for resourceful, creative people who like to tinker and love to make things. The Faire will feature craftsmen, artisans, performers, homesteaders, crafters, inventors, thinkers and doers and will showcase cutting edge technology such as 3D printing and robotics, but also have more traditional trades such as woodworking, fine arts, and sewing crafts.

Makers anywhere from hobbyists to large corporations will be there, because the Faire is about creativity and innovation everywhere. The purpose is to expose attendees to skills they have never seen or tried before whether they’re cutting edge, centuries old or anywhere in between.

The Children’s Museum is the host and producer of this event. The Museum is a leader in our community for youth education and promoting a passion for lifelong learning. In keeping with this tradition, the theme for this year's Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire is “Makers of All Ages.” 

All Scouts who attend will have the opportunity to earn a Maker Patch by learning a few new skills at the Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire! Become a Children’s Museum Maker!

Learn to solder, talk to a mushroom farmer, tool some leather, make a circuit, learn to model a 3D object, spin some wool, try out a hydraulic arm! We have close to 50 different activities to try, experts to talk to and workshops to attend.

No registration is necessary, just ask for a patch program passport at the check-in desk. Admission to the 2019 Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire is FREE. Museum sponsored Maker activities and admission to the Museum are included. The event patch is offered to scouting organizations at no additional charge.

The patch is earned by filling out a “passport” book showing the different skills the scout has tried. The number and difficulty of the skills needed is based on age of the scout.

If you missed previous year’s Faire patch – you can still get them at the 2019 Faire!
