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.
Wake Tech is North Carolina's largest community college, serving more than 71,000 adults annually, with five campuses, three training centers, multiple community sites and a comprehensive array of online learning options. Wake Tech is fully accredited and offers more than 200 associate's degrees, diplomas, and certificates that prepare students for university transfer or immediate employment. The college offers non-credit continuing education programs that include customized workforce training, small business support, public safety officer training, basic skills courses such as English as a Second Language and high school equivalency preparation, and other courses for personal enrichment. Wake Tech also serves high school students at Wake Tech Early college of Health and Sciences and the Vernon Malone College and Career Academy, in partnership with Wake County Public Schools.
Wake Tech is committed to promoting and supporting Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Strong STEAM skills are a central element of a well-rounded education and the innovation of "makers" in STEAM fields is closely linked with our community's economic prosperity and contribution to the nation and the global economy. The Raleigh Mini Maker Faire will foster a growing "maker" community in Wake County and serve to promote new makers and entrepreneurship by providing a venue for networking, hands-on activities, workshops, lectures, and demonstrations. Wake Tech will also utilize this opportunity to expand our dedication to increasing the number of women in STEM careers.
