Discover the Art and Science behind DIY at The Manila Mini Maker Faire 2018

"Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It's a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It's typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don't encounter every day."

This year the Manila Mini Maker Faire 2018 for the 2nd year in a row, will have over 70 Makers from all over the Philippines, including Visayas and Mindanao. The Philippines will be in the global maker map again as The Mind Museum, Make Magazine, and co-presenter 3M Philippines, organize this years Manila Mini Maker Faire (MMMF) on June 23-24, 2018 at The Mind Museum.
"The Mind Museum continues to push for the Filipino public to be part not just of the conversations in science and engineering around the world but also in making and doing. This second MMMF in a row that The Mind Museum is hosting is a salute tot he makers in our local community who not only affirm but persist, despite the odds, to breed and raise the bar of creativity in the way technology can be at the service of human lives." ~Maribel Garcia, Curator of The Mind Museum

"3M Philippines has been behind The Mind Museum since its beginning as a founding donor. We are pleased to support the Manila Mini Maker Faire on its second run this 2018. Innovation is at the heart of 3M. We never stop being curious because there is a value in asking what if. In wondering. Wonder leads to improving the world around us." ~Mr. Ariel Lacsamana, President & Managing Director of 3M Philippines

3M, globally, has been operating since 1902. It has been in the Philippines since 1964. I had only known 3M's products with their famous cleaning kitchen product Scotch-Brite dishwashing pads, as well as the one I use in my working area which is the Post-It Notes. But after visiting their office at 3M Customer Technical Center in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. And I came to realized they have a lot more products that I had only discovered there and it was amazing to know it all...

3M is a science, technology and innovation company dedicated to advancing companies, enhancing homes and improving lives. It is their goal to improve the lives of the Filipinos.

This year Manila Mimi Maker Faire aims to establish a stronger maker community through networking and collaboration with makers from different parts of the country. A special innovation tour, hosted by 3M Philippines, will be held before the Faire to help inspire makers to continue making. This will be followed by a Maker's Networking Night to give an extraordinary chance for participants to interact with their fellow makers.

Many people are unaware of the impact science has on their lives. A major conclusion to that - science needs a champion! 3M and The Mind Museum (through the Bonifacio Art Foundation) have a shared genuine passion to promote and invest STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) around the world. Our country deserves a world-class home for science - one that provides an extraordinary experience, one that inspires the next generation of makers.

Possibilities are endless when given access
to education, opportunity, and exposure.
