About the Organizer: The Hong Kong Maker Club (HKMC)
We are a group of Makers focusing in robotics, electronics and technologies. Inspired by the Make Movement initially spreading from US, we organized the first and Second Hong Kong Mini Maker. We hope local makers will get benefit from the maker faire through demonstrating their works, sharing ideas and inspiring each others. From our experience, we have built up maker networks and each of them would support each others. Some of them even startup their own business with the concept and projects demonstrated in our mini Maker Faire. We also hope to work with other maker groups (e.g. Handcrafts, Games, Education, etc) and interested parties with similar objective to work together to promote the D-I-Y and Maker’s culture.
What is a Maker?
A ‘Maker’ can be any person or group who invents, designs, creates, and/or builds objects or information systems with the goal of learning, teaching, inspiring, or improving the state of the world.
Please just come , play and show off your creation.

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.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK),Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), andcommunity-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now beingproduced around the United States and the world—including right here in Hong Kong.
