Sponsor the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire: an amazing affair that can’t compare
Banana piano. 3D printer. Stop-motion animation. Mechanical sculptures. Drink-dispensing robots. Brass band. Typical New Orleans Saturday? Nope. It’s the one-of-a-kind New Orleans Mini Maker Faire!
At the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire, makers of all ages gather to show what they’ve made and share what they’ve learned. We host tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, commercial exhibitors, and more. It’s an inspiring, imaginative, and educational event.
Entering its fourth year, the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire provides an opportunity to highlight the great creators and creations of the Crescent City, from high-tech drones to handcrafted costumes. Bricolage Academy, along with fellow community members, believes that everyone is a maker and values learning from the knowledge and experiences of others. By hosting a Maker Faire, we give future innovators a chance to learn from makers and projects as they begin their own innovative journeys.
As this event grows, our mission is to continue to seek out and showcase the culture of art, design, and DIY that has made New Orleans one of America’s most unique cities.
Support Bricolage Academy: a school that fosters maker minds
Proceeds from the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire benefit Bricolage Academy of New Orleans, a tuition-free, open enrollment New Orleans charter school. At Bricolage, we’re makers of the future. Our mission is to advance educational equity by preparing students from diverse backgrounds to be innovators who change the world.
At Bricolage, our students and our staff exhibit the maker mindset. We have created a school unlike any other in the city—one focused equally on academic excellence, educational equity, student diversity and innovation.
We define innovation as creative problem solving, and we embed that tenet throughout our curriculum. Two times per week, our diverse student body participates in an innovation class, where they explore their individual intelligences and learn through collaboration, experience, and making. More than an extension of the core science and math curricula, the innovation class is co-curricular problem solving, engineering, design, and creativity.
The New Orleans Mini Maker Faire is an extension of our innovation classroom and our mission to create innovators. We hope that you join us in our efforts to advance educational equity, create innovators, and influence New Orleans public education by supporting the Fourth Annual New Orleans Mini Maker Faire.
