The University of the District of Columbia will host the inaugural National Maker Faire 11 a.m.-7 p.m. June 12-13, 2015, to coincide with the “Week of Making.”

Part science fair, part county fair and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies.

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with technologies including Raspberry Pi, Arduino, electronic instruments and 3D printers, as well as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) projects, textiles, crafting activities, homemade robots and more. The Faire will feature local inventors from the local community in a “DC showcase”, in addition to makers representing communities across America.

The event is free to attend. Click here for more information.
