Maker Faire Milwaukee: Where Tech & DIY Meet

Jason Rieve
Tom Luljak with guests.

Do you love technology? How about do-it-yourself projects? If you enjoy both, or know someone who does, then this episode is for you.

On this edition of UWM Today, we highlight the upcoming Maker Faire Milwaukee. Inventors, tinkerers and hobbyists come together for this event to show off their work and share their knowledge of working with technology. The Maker Faire is one of the largest of its kind in the world, and UW-Milwaukee faculty and students play a big role in the event.

Joining us in the studio are Brett Peters, dean of UWM College of Engineering & Applied Science; Pete Prodoehl, director of interactive media at Betty Brinn Children’s Museum; and Chris Beimborn, outreach expert in STEM related fields at UWM College of Engineering & Applied Science.
