Maker Faire Field Trip Friday

Sponsored by Harley-Davidson

Jump Start Making in the 2018/2019 School Year

Faire co-host, the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, will organize Field Trip Friday programs for elementary, middle and high-school students again in 2018. All Maker Faire Milwaukee field trips include an orientation with a Museum maker-educator, a schedule of hands-on workshops and demonstrations with Faire exhibitors, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Faire and opportunities to talk with makers who will exhibit their work over the weekend. Workshops and demonstrations will represent a broad range of fields, including electronics, printmaking, digital fabrication, sustainability, data visualization, as well as Maker Faire’s classic Nerdy Derby workshop.

Field Trips are $7.50 per student and will include 2.5 hours of activities. We ask that each group has a minimum of 10 children, or pays a minimum of $75 for Field Trip Friday. Transportation is not included. For more information, please contact us at

Thanks to support from the Harley-Davidson Foundation, the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum will make Field Trip Friday programs available to more than 400 students from high-needs neighborhoods, engaging them in the Maker Movement and introducing making, or project-based learning, to their teachers and school administrators.
