2017 Kansas City Maker Faire

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, the event hosts a venue for aspiring Makers to participate in hands-on activities and learn new skills.

As an annual sponsor of the event, JE Dunn was proud to represent the construction industry and its role in the emerging Maker movement. Hoping to inspire future builders, JE Dunn spent the weekend teaching the young Makers how to build birdhouses through a fun, hands-on, and educational experience. The team also provided trading cards to educate the youngsters about high-demand skilled trades jobs.
