Our creativity is one of our best traits as Filipinos. Countless talented innovators and artisans in the country have stood testament to this fact, and have contributed great ideas for the betterment of our society.

This is what drives the Manila Mini Maker Faire, a gathering of the most creative minds which is happening at The Mind Museum. Creative and innovative people from the field of engineering, science, and the arts will showcase the fruit of their numerous experiments, hobbies, and projects in a two-day interactive fair for both young and old spectators. An example of an innovative idea at the event is a car body made out of abaca (an indigenous light fiber plant). The use of abaca makes the vehicle more energy-efficient, strong, lightweight, and best of all, cheaper. This is just a peek to the kind of mindful innovations that you can see when you attend the maker’s fair.

Tips on ticket purchasing and attending:

  • Check first if the event fits in your schedule. Some expos run for consecutive days, so choose the best date to attend.
  • To avoid being scammed, purchase a ticket only from official sellers, and steer clear of third-party sellers.
  • If you want to pay less, check if the event has early bird promos that have discounted admission tickets.
  • Follow the social media pages of the event organizer to be updated on any important updates and last-minute changes such as venue changes, time adjustments, and cancellations.
  • Check the rules and restrictions of the event and of the venue. Check what is allowed and what is not. Follow the dress code if there’s any.
  • If you’re planning to bring kids, check first if the event allows children.
  • If driving, use navigating apps such as Waze to guide you until you reach the destination. Adjust travel time by an extra hour to anticipate Metro Manila’s unpredictable traffic.
  • Keep an eye on your personal belongings while at the venue.
