Grand Rapids Public Museum Announces Maker Faire Tickets
Grand Rapids- Maker Faire is back in Grand Rapids on August 18 and 19 for the 5th year at the Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM). Combining a traditional science fair with innovation and engineering, the GRPM transforms into a festival of local community makers showcasing things they have made and skills they have.
From tinkers and hobbyists to local companies, see inventions, robotics, technology, sewing, wood and metal working, and so much more! Each Maker Faire booth is hands-on for visitors to interact with. Visitors will have the opportunity to drive robots, make art, see how products are created, and learn new skills.
The 2018 Maker Faire will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19. Tickets are on sale now! One and two day passes are available. One day passes are $4 for member adults, $2 for member children, $12 for general public adults and $7 for general public children. Make time for the full experience with a two-day pass. Two day passes are $7 for member adults, $4 for member children, $15 for general public adults and $10 for general public children. Visit GrandRapids.MakerFaire.com for tickets and more information.
Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire gathers all-ages to learn and teach about new ideas and collaborations. Interactive stations and inventions will be showcased by tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
