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 2014 is hosted by Bloominglabs and will be held from 10am to 4pm on August 30, 2014 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.

Last year we upcycled t-shirts with Discardia and the IU Creativity Lab, made vacuum formed molds and shot twinkies with Bloominglabs, watched frisbee throwing FIRST robots and bowling FIRST LEGO League robots, battled with the Bloomington Battle Games, knitted and crocheted with the Bloomington B’s and Blue Door Red Gate, raced pinewood derby cars with the Boys Scouts of America, talked HAM radios with Bloomington’s Amateur Radio clubs, and much much more.

Help us advertise! Here’s a copy of our flyer. Feel free to print it out and post it. We appreciate the help.

And speaking of help, 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 2014!
