Please join the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as we participate in Maker Faire Kansas City held in Kansas City, Missouri. Learn about intellectual property as well as engage in a hands-on activity inspired by the power of the sun.
Maker Faires are a gathering of people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. Maker Faire Kansas City celebrates things people create themselves — from new technology and electronic gizmos to urban farming and “slow-made” foods to homemade clothes, quilts and sculptures. This family-friendly event demonstrates what and how people are inventing, making and creating. It brings together Makers, Crafters, Inventors, Hackers, Scientists and Artists for a faire full of fun and inspiration.
