About the Organiser & Presenter:
PolyU Design launched the first edition of Maker Faire in Hong Kong in 2015 to promote creative inventions in the city and broaden the horizon of students. It is our mission to breed open-minded and proactive design talents, who will conduct practice-based research and contribute to local design industry, all the while developing their global version. Maker Faire targets participants who are forward-looking, original and entrepreneurial, its core values coincide with that of PolyU Design. It is believed that through participation and experience, students can learn much outside the classroom, and bring Maker culture to local community and group, thereby fostering positive change to Hong Kong society as a whole.
