Maker Faire is an annual event where makers gather to showcase the projects they’ve been working on. A mixture of hobbyists, tinkerers, artists, educators, engineers, scientists, community leaders and people from different walks of life share the knowledge they have learned. At the event people from general public have a chance to participate in hands-on activities and learn new skills such as soldering, 3D printing, robot-building, creating a comic strip etc.
