It has been an amazing 5 year journey for Maker Faire Singapore. In 2012, we started off as a Mini Maker Faire with about 20 maker booths and 1000 visitors. In 2016, we are proud to have hosted over 300 maker booths (including about 700 makers) and 15,000 visitors over a 2-day event at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

The growth would not have been possible without the relentless support of the maker community, who have grown the maker movement through their community activities throughout these years. Check out these photos and feel the pulse of the maker community! For more photos, please click here.

Maker Faire Singapore is part of the Singapore Science Festival which will going on until 5 August. Check out more information here!
