This year the Maker Faire Galicia, one of the most important maker fairs in Europe, will be held from June 2 to 6 and will repeat 100% online format, after the success of the last edition held last November at a Gaiás Museum virtual.
In this new edition we aim, in addition to expanding the scope both nationally and in Latin America, to reach all English-speaking countries and thus be able to offer a 100% global event.
As in previous years we will have two days dedicated to the professional field, two days open to the public and we will repeat with a specific day of the world of education, after the success it had in the last edition.
The program will be very varied and will have referents and specialists in different areas of knowledge. The professional conferences, which will take place on June 2 and 3, will be organized by sectors, highlighting some in which Galicia has great potential such as: Digitization, Biotechnology, Energy and Videogames.
On Friday, June 4, the day on which the exclusive education day will be held, the presentations will revolve around technology and educational innovation. In addition, the best projects from the educational centers that are presented will compete in three categories, minimakers (primary), makers (secondary and high school) and makers pro (FP) to choose the most innovative.
Finally, in the open days, on June 5 and 6, there will be very diverse content related to neurotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, science, social innovation, do it yourself, art, circular economy or gaming.
Finally, we want to announce that the "call for makers" or call for projects is now open, where we invite companies, educational centers, associations or makers to present their projects and be able to be selected to participate in the event. The deadline for submitting projects will be open until April 30 and registrations will be made at this link: https://galicia.makerfaire.com/more/
