The Connecticut Science Center is excited to host engaging demonstrations, vibrant displays, and hands-on activities centered around Connecticut innovation at our next installment of MakeFest. We will feature local makers, visionaries, and artisans, highlighting the ingenuity that makes our state a hub for STEM and entrepreneurship and inspiring visitors to create and build with their own hands. The fun extends to our Rooftop Garden with family gardening activities presented by the Petit Family Foundation.

Call for Makers

The Connecticut Science Center seeks local inventors, makers, and visionaries to serve as exhibitors at MakeFest on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Exhibitors will cultivate a vibrant atmosphere through interactive, engaging attendee experiences that balance education with entertainment. Ideally, we hope their activities will appeal to a wide age range. By celebrating the talents and achievements of local makers, we hope to highlight Connecticut innovation and craftsmanship and inspire families to create and build with their own hands. In particular, we want to feature marine and nautical sciences, as well as musically-oriented making in celebration of Amistad Journey to Freedom and Heartbeat Music Festival on the Riverfront. Here are just some of the topics we would love to see covered:

  • Musical instrument production
  • Ship/boat building
  • Robotics and drones
  • Science, biology/biotech, and chemistry projects
  • Virtual and augmented Reality
  • Sustainability and green technology
  • Electric and alternative-energy vehicles
  • Puppets, kites, toys and other imaginative creations
  • Unusual or vintage tools and machines
  • Fixing or taking apart household items (vacuums, clocks, washing machines, etc.)
  • Blacksmithing
  • Woodworking
  • 3D Printing
  • Laser engraving

Our team at the Connecticut Science Center can answer questions and provide support throughout the planning process. Please consider the following details:

  • We encourage participating exhibitors to include a family-friendly demonstration, visually dynamic display or hands-on activity. Our team can assist with brainstorming. While giveaways are not required, they can add to the experience.
  • We will provide a table and space within our galleries or on the plaza for on-site participants, as well as access to power.
  • Exhibitors must provide a Certificate of Insurance and name the Connecticut Science Center as the additional insured.
  • Space is limited! Please indicate your interest by contacting KRogers@ctsciencecenter.org

Sponsorship

Each MakeFest at the Connecticut Science Center will feature local makers and artisans from across the region.

Visitors will also explore STEM careers.

MakeFest sponsors will receive an attractive array of visibility and benefits. Leveraging media partnerships with iHeart Media, Univision, and more, MakeFest events will reach a diverse audience and a wide range of participants of all ages.
