Maker Faire Orlando Celebrates DIY Spirit in Central Florida September 12-13

The fourth annual Maker Faire Orlando will take place September 12-13, and it’s even bigger than ever before.

Maker Faire Orlando 2015

Maker Faire Orlando will take place on every floor of the Orlando Science Center, outside in Loch Haven Park and, for the first time, the Orlando Museum of Art, and there will even be an appearance by The Daily City’s Food Truck Bazaar.

The 2015 event features more than 250 one-of-a-kind projects from local Makers. Makers are DIY-enthusiasts who demonstrate their creativity and knowledge through personal creations. Makers come from all ages and backgrounds, ranging from techies to crafters to scientists to garage tinkerers. Each shares a common passion for innovation and creativity, as well as an educational spirit to inspire and encourage new Makers.

But it isn’t just about watching things being created. Attendees of all ages and skill levels will be able to partake in workshops where they can learn how to solder, screen print their own T-shirts and more.

Maker Faire Orlando is an ongoing collaboration between The Maker Effect Foundation and Orlando Science Center as well as members of the local Maker community, including FamiLAB, FACTUR, Orlando Museum of Art, Skycraft, Justin Peterson, Art & History Museums – Maitland, Crealde School of Art, and the Orange County Library System.

Advance admission to Maker Faire Orlando 2015 is $30.25 per adult and $24.25 per child for a two day pass, and $16.25 per adult and $14.25 per child for a single day pass.
