Colorado Maker Hub– a 501(c)3 non-profit organization — is an educational non-profit with a mission to foster maker innovation and to create a thriving, sustainable future by advancing and connecting Colorado makers – a vibrant community of tinkerers, tech enthusiasts, artists, educators, youth makers, hobbyists, science clubs, students, and entrepreneurs. We are a membership alliance of makerspaces and the maker institutions (schools, businesses, civic groups) that create the innovation economy. The Colorado Maker Hub produces 3 signature events a year: Sparks & Spirits, Rocky Mountain Makerspace Summit, and Maker Faire Denver. In addition, the Maker Hub provides youth maker programs, professional development for educators in making, and has invented the IdeaLabGo! mobile maker station to bring innovation to education. www.coloradomakerhub.org
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 Make Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA, and in 2014 celebrated its eleventh annual show with some 1100 makers and 130,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Kansas City, Detroit, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Silver Spring, Paris, Rome, Oslo,Trondheim, Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), and Shenzhen – and now DENVER – are the home of larger-scale “featured” Maker Faires and over 120-community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
