Mini Maker Faire 2017 (September 29-30)
There is the possibility to visit the new Maker Space of Steyr during the Mini-Maker-Fair on September 29 from 14:00 to 19:00. Makers come to show their creations and share their learnings. A 3D-printing LAB with novel technologies is part of the maker space. The association „Steyr Werke“  establishes the maker space in Musuem Arbeitswelt (Symposium location) in April 2017. The maker space is situated at the ground floor of the symposium location.

Competition on the field of additive manufacturing for schools 
Moreover, we are intended to extend Add-it 2017 with novel program elements.

We invite  technical high schools for a competition on the field of additive manufacturing.

Conrad electronics and Makerbot support the competition with a 3D- Printer.

   

 

 

We will prepare the corresponding call in the next week and both publish on the Add+it 2017 homepage and contact selected schools.

 

Symposium dinner, sponsored by UAR
Apart from the professional framework, a lot is offered: the symposium dinner, organized by the UAR, will take place in the castle garden Lamberg in Steyr.
