The pandemic limited the possibilities for a long time, but now creative makers can finally present their fascinating projects again at Maker Faire Hannover. On September 10th & 11th, makers and hobbyists from all over Germany and some European countries will gather in three exhibition halls of the Hanover Congress Center and in the adjacent fountain garden to show the world what can be done at home in their own craft laboratory or in the open workshop everything is possible. The Maker Faire Hannover is under the patronage of the Federal Education Minister Bettina Stark-Watzinger and will be opened by Steffen Krach, Regional President of the Hannover Region.
In addition to some special highlight acts that will be officially announced during the week, the real highlight of the Maker Faire is of course the many different makers themselves, who enrich the event with their diversity. This year, the topic of energy generation and saving is particularly in focus.
It doesn’t have to be a yacht: Thomas Sebastion saves energy with his self-printed electric boat.
There will be the opportunity to find out more about DIY balcony solar tables from Guido Burger and you can build your own balcony power plant from Sebastian Müller. The topic will be rounded off with exciting lectures. At Glücksklee from the University of Hanover, there will be autonomous plant experiments for the ISS to be discovered and the hobby brewers in Hanover will show how applied biochemistry and technology can be used to create your own beer. The FabLab Munich presents various open hardware projects, including a 3D printer for metal. In addition to the excellent workshop area, there will be workshops to try out for yourself at almost every stand.
