Makevention:

A celebration of the Bloomington Maker community

Makevention is a celebration of the do-it-yourself spirit with loads of local and regional makers sharing their love for making. Makevention is hosted by Bloominglabs and will be held from 10am to 4pm on August 29, 2015 at the Convention Center in Bloomington, Indiana.

Makevention is about makers including tech enthusiasts, artists, educators, crafters, hobbyists, and tinkerers all who have a love of making. Check out our video which gives you a taste of the making community in Bloomington.

In past years we have made hats and upcycled t-shirts with Discardia and the IU Creativity Lab, molded soap and shot twinkies with Bloominglabs, watched frisbee throwing FIRST robots and bowling FIRST LEGO League robots, printed 3D objects with the Bloomington Fabrication Group, cut out jigsaw puzzles with Press (jigsaw) Puzzles, explored circuit bending with the Monroe County Public Library, built toys with Wonderlab, talked HAM radios with Bloomington’s Amateur Radio clubs, and much much more.

If you would like to sponsor this exciting, fun, community-oriented event, please check out our Sponsors page. Even a $50 donation will get your name on our Sponsor Page and a cool Makevention laser-cut wooden badge. Your donation will help build the Bloomington maker community. Extra proceeds from Makevention will fund making events throughout the year for youth in Bloomington and the surrounding areas.

See you at Makevention 2015!
