Heartland MakerFest

The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning sponsored the 2018 Heartland Maker Fest, an annual event celebrating the amazing makers in Urbana-Champaign and the surrounding communities. Heartland Maker Fest strives to:

  • Inspire By searching for creative and unique makers to exhibit at the festival we hope attendees are inspired by the creative projects of others.
  • Empower By focusing on hands on experiences we hope people feel empowered to make their own projects a reality.
  • Connect By creating a free and open public festival we hope to connect attendees to the local resources they need to help make their ideas come to life.

Who is a Maker? Anyone who likes to make things! An example of some the diverse fields include: arts, crafts, engineering, music, science, technology, Do-It-Yourselfers and many more.
