The 2023 Des Moines Mini Maker Faire will be hosted by the Science Center of Iowa on Monday, September 4. The all-ages festival celebrates those who tinker, build, experiment and collaborate.
Exhibitors will showcase creativity from across the state, and attendees will be able to participate in hands-on activities to discover their own inner maker. There will be a lot of activities for visitors to do, including skill stations where you can learn to solder, build circuits, knit or crochet, and make puppets. Multiple local robotics teams will be onsite to talk about their projects and provide live demonstrations.
The festival atmosphere continues outside with food trucks available from 11:00 am-2:00 pm.
All Des Moines Mini Maker Faire activities are included with SCI general admission — free for members!
