STEAM Innovation Fair

Hive 13,

Conner Prairie is introducing a STEAM-themed innovation fair on Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16. As with our 2011 Indy Mini Maker Faire, our STEAM-themed innovation fair will include some of the region’s most creative makers, as well as scientists, technologists, engineers, and artisans who will showcase their work.

In support of our on-going efforts to provide more STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programming at Conner Prairie, we are excited to announce a new initiative in place of this year’s Indy Mini Maker Faire that will spotlight innovations in science, technology, engineering, the arts and math:

A key component of the innovation fair will be the Makers Pavilion. Makers from across the nation will be invited to interact with our guests and exhibit their creations in the context of innovation. Builds will be diverse and might range from rockets, robotics to textiles. Over the two day fair, the Maker Pavilion will demonstrate how makers exemplify the tenacious spirit of innovation regardless of the scale in which they work. Together with scientists, technologists, and others working in STEAM-related areas, we look to spotlight the diverse mix of people who innovate.

We hope that you will consider exhibiting at the Maker Pavilion, September 15 & 16, as part of Conner Prairie’s STEAM! Innovation Week.
