“We are not just consumers. We are makers of Things” ~Dale Dougherty, Founder of MAKE Magazine and creator of Maker Faire, CEO of Maker Media

Discover the Maker in Yourself!

There are 2,082,224 creative people in New Mexico and we want to bring you all together to share your passions. We believe that when this happens you’ll not only inspire each other but everyone around you. Join the movement and discover the Maker in yourself.

Imagine an event that is fun and entertaining for the whole family, but is also informative, educational, full of hands-on activities and interactive FUN!  Be a part of an event that includes science, technology, art, engineering, toys and music.  A unique event that will inspire people to explore, experiment, invent and look at the world in a whole new way.

The Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire is an amazing new annual event in New Mexico that is both entertaining and educational for the whole family, and a great place for your organization to gain publicity among a targeted audience.

The Maker Movement Meets the VCs  “[The maker movement is] as significant as the shift from agriculture to the early industrial era.” Jeremy Rifkin, Wharton economist. Bloomberg Business Week, 2/16/12

Introducing New Mexico New Makers a 501(C)3

Our mission is to connect, inform and facilitate a Maker community in New Mexico and to help people discover the Maker in them. And to support and encourage students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math.) As well as students of all ages and interests.

The Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire is created specifically to meet this need and to bring an exciting interactive experience to New Mexico.  However, New Mexico New Makers cannot do this alone – we need your help.   We are looking for partners to support our mission. Your company fits this description and we know that your business will benefit from this partnership as well.

Moving the Economy: The Future of the Maker Movement “I’m motivated and moved by the idea, the belief-that the people who invent and build and make things have the power to change the world.” TJ McCue, 10/26/11 Forbes Blog

Basic Maker demographics

Over eight in ten (81%) are makers with a median age of 44. Participants also report a high median household income of $106,000 and nearly three-quarters (73%) own their home or apartment. Most are married or living as married with nearly four in ten reporting children under the age of 17 living in the household.

 Maker Education

Makers are clearly a well-educated group with 97% having attended or graduated from college; 80% say they have post-graduate education and over four in ten hold post-graduate degrees.

How can you help build a strong and healthy maker movement in New Mexico?
