The “STEAM Festival” focuses on a mix of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Makers (STEAM) around a Steampunk theme. Our event will promote programs and interests in these industries for families, digital educators, businesses, institutes, and everyone else interested in today’s modern culture and the historical evolution of Steampunk! This event includes workshops, lesson seminars, educational panels, new innovation, demos, digital artists, makers, geek entertainment, cosplay, and more! 


Who Are Makers?

Maker Fairs are a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, a Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects. Makers are creative and innovative people. 


What Is Steampunk?

Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. It introduces a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction. Steampunk shows the love for innovation, steam-powered machines, inventions, and S.T.E.A.M discoveries. 


A Brilliant Combination

"While STEAM Education is considered Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. I wanted to combine the two for a more creative and educational approach to represent Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Makers. This brings more interest to a variety of ideals and thinkers and doesn’t intimidate students with certain subjects. I believe STEAM Education, Electronics, Manufacturing, and Production would be more looked into if we presented these topics and careers as brilliant and CREATIVE rather than just serious and boring."
