Maker Ed at Maker Faire: Sponsorship Opportunities

Annually, Maker Ed hosts the Ed Stage at the flagship Maker Faire Bay Area (MFBA) and the World Maker Faire in New York (WMF). Over two days, Maker Ed curates and runs the MAKE: Education Stage (Ed Stage), where we host talks and presentations related to making and its role in education and youth development. A wide range of educational institutions and roles are represented among the speakers and the attendees, including educators, administrators, and researchers in libraries, museums, schools of every type, universities, community and non-profit organizations, and more.
