Maker Media produces over 150 Maker Faires throughout the world each year, but the World Maker Faire in New York is among the largest.The flagship event is a wonderful opportunity for all ages to create, invent, learn, think and be inspired by the creative, engineering-related impulse to make and re-make the everyday objects that shape our future. Attendees can meet talented makers and learn about the interesting technologies they use, and then join hands-on activities to make their own creations.
Mouser and Imahara have received much attention throughout 2016 for multiple innovative projects that call on engineers and makers across the globe through Mouser’s dynamic Empowering Innovation Together educational program.
