We’re working with our community partners from Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods to help bring 200 children, students, and their families to Toronto Mini Maker Faire on Sunday, September 22, and we need your support!
In Canada, the latest figures show that women make up less than 10 per cent of university students enrolled in science and engineering and only 22 per cent of the science and engineering workforce. And in the U.S. only 7 per cent of blacks and latinos make up the science, engineering, technology and mathematics workforce. The Conference Board of Canada’s 2013 Innovation Report sees Canada slipping to 13th in innovation among 16 peer countries, underlining the need to strengthen our creativity, invention and entrepreneurship skills.
Pay it forward and help donate the cost of a ticket for as little as $4 and up to a school bus rental for $345. Help more people experience Maker Faire.

Part science fair, part festival, and part something entirely new, Toronto Mini Maker Faire is a registered non-profit, all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, engineers, tinkerers, hobbyists, science clubs, hackers, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned while creating it. Toronto joins over 60 cities around the world that host a Mini Maker Faire of their own.
