ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s National Maker Week and Albuquerque is celebrating it in a big way.

The week is to introduce the community to the importance of not only collaboration, but entrepreneurism, and STEM education. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Makers are those of all ages and backgrounds that create anything and everything from 3D Printing, robots, gaming, coding, digital and electronic art, to crafting and design.

Currently, Makers are needed to participate in the educational, hands-on activities, interactive, family friendly faire that focuses on innovation, STEM, art, toys, music, and creativity.

The ABQ Mini Maker Faire begins Saturday, August, 29 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday, August, 30 from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

This all is happening at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum and tickets are now available. Adults pay $10 and Children $5.
