concordia-makers-faireFor the third consecutive year, Concordia International School Shanghai will host the Jinqiao Mini Maker Fair. This wildly popular community event has attracted hobbyists, tinkerers, artisans, craftspeople and the merely curious of heart from around the city to celebrate, inspire and get inspired.

This year’s event on April 30 promises to be as broad-based as in previous years and will include a showcase of skills in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, cooking and much more. Additionally, there will be workshops, music and performances, talks and presentations from both amateur and professional makers.

The maker movement is a global phenomenon, referred to by many as the greatest SHOW-AND-TELL on earth. It is a showcase for those who embrace the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and want to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. 

"It is a chance to learn and play, and sometimes you can learn just by playing,” says Jennifer Chapman, one of the organizers of the event.

Last year’s faire featured an array of nifty DIY creations from sturdy cardboard furniture and up-cycled assemblage sculpture to PVC rockets and a high-tech mood lighting system controlled by a mobile phone app.
