The biggest Maker Faire in Czechia is back in full force! Czech DIYers, inventors, designers and creators will finally meet again offline in Prague this weekend (11th and 12th September) as Maker Faire Prague is just around the corner. Held in the inspiring premises of the Industrial Palace (Výstaviště Praha), the largest Czech Maker Faire brings about 150 projects from a wide range of fields and interests.

Maker Faire Prague offers several great attractions (literally). Visitors will get a chance to experience a post-apocalyptic atmosphere with the Bratronice Rocket Base team, who literally live in hand-made scenery from a post-apocalyptic film and who will also bring their own DIY costumes and machines. The acrobatic group V.O.S.A. will present a 6-meter lion puppet, which needs to be controlled by at least three people. The puppet is still being perfected so that it can represent the Czech Republic at the EXPO 2020 in Dubai. Another tremendous attraction is the world’s largest air cannon – shooting from it is truly memorable and its booming sound unforgettably adds to the atmosphere of the festival.

“Although we often come across the idea that Maker Faire is mainly for fans of electronics and technology, this year will offer a number of creators who use mainly handicraft for their products. One of the most interesting, however, is the combination of proven years of manufacturing processes with modern technologies. For example, an Arduino-controlled loom or elaborate luminous jewelry with a remote control will be on display. Some make-ups give way to their creativity in the production of effective liquid lighting fixtures for the design household, others make their products from paper or knots on a clothesline, ”explain Jiří Zemánek and Jan Kužník, the festival’s program bosses from the organizing association No Science.

Influencers and celebrities of maker community will not be missing at Prague festival. Nicolas Bras, a musician, multi-instrumentalist, and maker of original musical instruments from Paris, will come together with his curious arsenal of instruments. Nicolas will hold a workshop on making a flute from PVC pipe and play two concerts at the festival’s main stage. Also expected to star at the festival is Becky Stern, a long-time MAKE magazine contributor and wearable electronics specialist who now works for the Instructables.

    I have learned some points through your blog post. One other point I would like to convey is that there are numerous games available and which are designed particularly for preschool age small children. They include things like pattern acceptance, colors, animals, and styles. These typically focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This makes little ones engaged without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks
