--Intelligent Production--

 Have you ever seen a mobile phone case that can both float and charge? Have you ever seen a robot that can simulate real moves or 3D printing technology that requires no foundation? The Intelligent Production Zone allows you to have access to the cutting-edge and intriguing technologies.




--Black Technology Experience Zone--

 You can find all black technologies here and witness the charm of these technologies in a close range!! Open source hardware, electric skateboard, Qbo aircraft and so on.




 The definition of a maker is not confined to technological innovation. Creation is the nature of all people. Anyone who’s keen on hands-on skills is a maker! Varied DIY experience zones are the “celebrity” on site. 

How about making a unique stool in person? You are the one who will piece it together and complete the drawing. 



--Maker Education--

 Make your first step of maker education to let children accomplish works of “high technological content”, who will be our future scientist with full of potential.



--Maker Forum--

 Every year Maker Forum attracted a great number of Chinese and foreign creative experts to share their stories about maker:

Gareth Richard James, chief education and strategy director of Micro:bit Educational Foundation.

Matthew Belanger, co-founder of Interactive Media Art from NYU Shanghai.

BAO Weiyue, a new media teacher from Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts, Fudan University.

Many more to come this year!

 X-FLY Drone Racing Contest is held at Maker Carnival Shanghai for the first time. Spectators can experience the flying of the drone in a first person view after wearing FPV glasses.



--Technology Competition | Robot--

 The contest of Robotex China showcases the intense competition between intelligent robots. You can manipulate the robot to fight against your partner. Whoever pushes the other out of the circle is the winner!



--Great Maker Stage--

 A stage that allows exhibitors to communicate with the audience is prepared. So long as you have something to share, you can speak it out on the Great Maker Stage!



--Farmers’ Fair--

 On the Daxue Road branch site is our Farmers’ Fair. Here, a lot of traditional craftsmen and people who pursue a primitive lifestyle gather together. Sugar painting, self-brewed fruit wine, hand-made fruit cards. Everything here is simplistic, simple and pure.
