The line up of all the events is here. It could be subject to variation until a few days before the events start
There’s an ongoing debate about the future of the music industry—and a central issue revolves around technology and how people’s changing music-making habits are affecting the industry.
“Maker Music” section at Maker Faire Rome is meant to offer a unique chance to discover and promote the most unusual music-making practices. Soundcrafting will be king. A multimedia set will welcome adults and kids with workshops and performances by domain leaders and professional musicians. Interactive, live performances will allow participants to become protagonists and create their very own “new sound”.
Maker Faire is a fantastic event no matter what age you are, but kids are a kind of luckier! A dedicated “Kids Area” area is awaiting them at Maker Faire Rome 2015! With more than 3000 sqm of labs, workshops, performances, kids aged 5-16 will be experiencing the best of the #maker spirit.
Electronic, robotics, coding and digital creativity are the “Kids Area” keywords. Besides: thinkering/learning-by-doing/interaction design/ wearables activities, together with some wonderful exhibits geared toward kids, will offer children the opportunity to be inspired by what a maker can invent and create with just a little ingenuity..
Every 15 minutes, children – guided by experienced mediators – will be taken through educational tours and engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Electronic, Arts & Maths) learning activities
The Kids Area also enjoys its own FabLab, where kids are offered the chance to discover and try many of the DYI most common technologies under the supervision of experienced makers.
A lot of fun is scheduled, too: performances and live science show will run all day long.
