makerfaireend World Maker Faire 2012 a Resounding Success

The World Maker Faire is over! Official numbers are in and the Faire was a great success, even in the midst of a rainy weekend. Thanks to all of you who made it happen! We had over 650 Makers and 55,000 attendees. Mayor Bloomberg declared it “Maker Week” and The New York State Assembly Legislative Commission on Science and Technology issued a citation in support of World Maker Faire, praising the Faire’s mission of unlocking the potential of science and technology and putting it in the hands of anyone with curiosity, creativity, and a desire to make something. This was an amazing event and we’re very proud of how it turned out. Thank you, New York. We love you!
