The third edition of Maker Faire Lille, a science festival as well as a popular event known for promoting innovation, is taking place in Lille from March 1 to 3. Started in 2006 at the US’ Silicon Valley, Maker Faire features workshops, presentations and conferences around the themes of creativity, manufacturing and the do-it-yourself movement.
Today, it is held in 38 countries and brings together technology enthusiasts, artisans, educators, inventors, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors and students. All these ‘makers’ share their discoveries and experiences with the audience. The event aims at promoting the Makers Movement, touted as the new industrial revolution, that encourages manufacturing of concrete objects and its different forms such as sewing, carpentry, cooking, 3D printing, robotics, physics, chemistry, and so on.
