Maker Faire is a celebration of the Maker Movement, it’s a family-friendly all-ages showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. It brings together curious people who enjoy learning and love sharing what they can do. Faire gathers together adult and child tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. Maker Faires happen all around the globe under the license of Make:Community.

Maker Faire Cairo is one of the biggest faires in the MENA region attracting thousands of people every year, and empowering hundreds of makers and innovators. It’s a place where people show what they make, share what they’re learning, and have fun.

Thanks to Waya Media, we were able to capture this critical moment during our team’s preparations for Maker Faire Cairo 2019, while Maker Faires were paused around the globe.

A Day in Maker Faire Cairo

Imagine hearing the roars of DIY-made cars competing, and walk south into an alternate world of a cosplayers’ convention… If you’re smelling the chemicals reacting and shooting up to the sky, then you’ve definitely just passed by the Super Science Show. And no you’re not hallucinating; those are real-life Robots, in a real-life fight. This is Maker Faire Cairo!

Who is a Maker?

We are parents, students, scientists, engineers, artists, and hobbyists. We are young and old and we all share a love for innovation, creativity, and inspiring others to make something—anything—as long as it makes people happy. WE ARE ALL MAKERS!
