    Top Reasons to Sponsor Makevention

Join and strengthen the maker movement.
Previous Makeventions have featured dozens of exhibitors and over 1,000 attendees.

“As kids get these hands-on opportunities, all of a sudden you start to see that they are engaged, that they are learning really complex things, they are making the kinds of things that they’ve envisioned. When everybody is gathered to do this hands-on making, there is a sort of an electricity that goes through the room.” —Kylie Peppler, Professor of Education, IU Creativity Labs

Foster community within and around Bloomington.
Makevention is run by BloomingLabs and Monroe County Public Library, and features on-going sponsorship from the Pinnacle School and others.

Support learning for all ages.
Makevention exhibitors provide valuable opportunities for community members to learn, build, break down, and rebuild.

“Makevention is a great asset because it not only showcases the creativity and innovation in our community, but it also shows what can be done with a knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).” —Staci Radford-Vincent, Program and Outreach Manager, WonderLab
