Kinderprogramm

Awesome Technology for small Makers

In cooperation with Wirtschaftsagentur Wien we offer an exciting program for kids at Maker Faire Vienna on May 5th &6th, 2018.

For all workshops and hands-on activities: Just come by, no pre-registration needed! There is limited space for all workshops, therefore participants will be registered by the “first come, first served” principle. Some workshop hosts ask for a contribution towards expenses (for materials etc.) that can only be paid in cash.
