MAKER FAIRE MILWAUKEE IS PROUD TO INTRODUCE THE FIRST INDUSTRY, COLLEGE & CAREER EXCHANGE AT OUR 5TH ANNUAL FAIRE, SEPTEMBER 28-30, 2018 AT WISCONSIN STATE FAIR PARK.

THE EXCHANGE IS:

  • Special talks and hands-on demonstrations for high-school students from high-needs neighborhoods who will visit the Faire as part of Field Trip Friday;
  • Opportunities throughout the weekend for Maker Faire’s 40,000 visitors – students, young talents, job-seekers and makers – to explore career paths, education and work opportunities related to making and the critical STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and math) fields;
  • A unique, festival-style setting for companies, start ups, colleges and universities, trade organizations and others to build awareness about their organizations and programs; and
  • Saturday and Sunday presentations, discussions and workshops that highlight the growing impact of the global Maker Movement on education, workforce training, job creation and economic development.

More than a third of Americans already identify as being part of the growing global Maker Movement. The Industry, Career & College Exchange offers a valuable opportunity to sponsors who want to be associated with this important, new feature of the event.
