Independently-organized but inspired by Maker Faire and MAKE magazine, Mission Maker Faire brings together hands-on education, science, engineering, art, craft, music, food, workshops, and performance, organized by Brightworks School, an innovative new K-12 alternative school dedicated to the principles of hands-on, engagement-based learning, located in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood.
This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers and thinkers from across San Francisco and the Bay Area—anyone who embraces the DIY spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things are especially desired.
