Our Sponsors are people who are just as passionate about the Maker movement as we are so it was fun to talk with Andrea of SFU SIAT about what they like about the Maker movement, Maker Faire and the awesome exhibit they are planning.

We’re so happy to have you on board this year as a Sponsor. What is it about Maker Faire that draws your organization?
