Chevron Enjoy Science and NSTDA Announce
Maker Faire Bangkok 2018—the Largest Maker Faire
in Southeast Asia

Chevron, the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), and maker communities in Thailand, have joined forces to hold the “Maker Faire Bangkok 2018”, which will showcase an extensive array of innovative and creative projects by makers on 20-21 January 2018 at The Street Ratchada. The event will bring together a full spectrum of inventions from Thai and international makers, offering great opportunities for youth, parents and faire goers to experience the process of tinkering and making firsthand. The event will also provide a platform for makers to share ideas and promote maker culture in Thailand. Such collaboration is important to driving the country towards a technology- and innovation-driven economy under Thailand 4.0.

The event is part of the Chevron Enjoy Science Project, which is enhancing the effectiveness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education for Thai youth. STEM subjects are widely known to be key drivers in the move towards creating an innovation-driven economy, and for more than two-and-a-half years, the project has been working to strengthen STEM education through interactive classrooms and informal STEM education activities, including Science Caravans, Career Fairs, and Maker Spaces. The project is also raising awareness about the critical importance of STEM education to the future of Thailand and encouraging students, parents, and educational professionals to apply STEM knowledge in everyday life.
