Call for Makers open until March 31, 2018

The Children’s Museum of Bloomsburg will host the third annual Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the Children’s Museum, 2 West 7th Street, in Bloomsburg. The Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire is calling for all makers to come and exhibit what they love to do.

Part science fair, part county fair, part craft show 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 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.

Now through March 31, groups or individuals of all ages interested in presenting their projects, hobbies, experiments, and do-it-yourself spirit should complete the application at

Makers range from engineers to artists to scientists to crafters to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. As the Children’s Museum is host to the Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire, “Young Makers” are encouraged to apply also.

“The Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of creativity and ingenuity in and around our community,” Ginny Weibel, Education Coordinator at the Children’s Museum said. “It is an incredible showcase for imagination, invention and craftsmanship.”
