Makerspace Fair

February 17 @ 10:30 - 14:30 CST

Join the Ion, Ion Prototyping Lab, and Innovation Spark to meet and greet with Houston’s makerspaces and network with innovators!

Join the Ion Prototyping Lab, Innovation Spark, and Houston area makerspaces at the Ion Makerspace Fair! Take a peek at projects and offerings at the various makerspaces in our community and network with fellow makers and innovators. We will have demonstrations and hands-on activities throughout the event.

This initial event is put together in cooperation with Ion, Ion Prototyping Lab, TXRX Labs and Innovation Spark.

The 2023 Greater Innovation Spark Houston Makerspace Crawl is an exciting event that brings together the local Makerspace Community. This annual event provides an opportunity for makerspaces in the Greater Houston area to open their doors and invite the public to explore their facilities and see the amazing projects being created within their walls.

The crawl will kick off on Friday, February 17, 2023, at the Ion with a group event. We will then have eight weeks of open houses where each participating makerspace will have demonstrations and workshops showcasing their unique capabilities and offering hands-on opportunities for attendees to get involved. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for weeks of creativity, innovation, and community. The event will conclude with our First Every Sugar Land Innovation Spark Festival on April 1, 2023, in Sugar Land Town Square.
