What is maker fest?
Maker Fest is the Indian continuation of Maker Fair hosted across America, Europe, Africa and Japan, among others. Maker Faire, which launched in California, USA in 2006, now hosts hundreds of thousands attendees twice a year across California and New York. It is the amalgamation of festivals celebrating the innovators and an art show with all the booths for inventors and demonstrations and workshops for attendees. Creators, artists and hobbyist across the country are invited to present their contemporary applications of ideas using the vast ocean of art, science and technology. Also, it is noncommercial and free for the public to attend. Maker Fest monumentalized not only the final product but also the learning and explorations one faced during the making of something new using the already established. Come together to build up an enormous community of Makers in India as India is renowned of having the greatest intellectual horsepower among other countries of world.
