Maimonides Medical Center Community of Nurse Scholars is hosting our inaugural Maimonides Medical Center Mini Maker Faire in Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. We are excited — the first-ever Maker Faire in a hospital — is bringing together the power of making and the field of health and medicine in a unique community hands on innovation.
We are reaching out to the community and local organizations to learn and invite makers to participate in the Making Health projects that harness your hands-on ingenuity to make patients better and stay health in and out of the clinic.
Makers and interested visitors can follow updates from the MaimonidesMini Maker Faire on Facebook.
ABOUT MAKER FAIRE
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 Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in the Maimonides.
