Event Sponsored by our neighbors Kilkenny AleHouse and 27 Mix

Last Chance! Maker Applications Due April 1st!

The Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire is a showcase of creativity and innovation in the New Jersey community. The event invites makers (individuals, groups, industries and K-12 to universities) to present their projects that explore DIY (do-it-yourself) thinking, reveal their process and show how materials are pushed to their limits.

Whether it’s science explorations, woodworking, robotics, beekeeping or e-textiles this event will explore it all with the Museum’s art and science collection as the ultimate ‘maker’ examples.

If you have a project that explores D.I.Y., or shows people how they can make things themselves, we’d love to have you apply. If you are a Young Maker under the age of 18, please have your (adult) project mentor submit your project for you.

Join us for a Maker Meet Up

Sign up here to Meet Up!

If you want to create a viable business from your Maker passion, this is the meeting for you. In leading up to the Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire, we will host our next meetup on April 14th at 6 PM at the Newark Museum located on 49 Washington St, Newark, NJ. We will be introducing a new live/work project planned for Newark called Makerhoods which will offer you affordable living and working space. We will also have speakers discussing micro loans for makers so you can truly get your maker business off the ground. We will also get a tour of the soon-to-be opened Makerspace at the Newark Museum.
