The CO· Maker Fair

Memorial Union Ballroom & Student Experience Center Plaza, 10am – 3pm

OSU will host the fourth annual CO• Maker Fair, an event which honors craftsmanship and technology by bringing together makers who will share their knowledge, skills, and resources with the OSU, Corvallis, and Oregon communities. The CO•, a campus-community partnership, offers the OSU community and the general public the opportunity to collaborate, innovate, and create in addition to providing a forum for research and teaching the value of hands-on learning in K-12 classrooms and beyond.

Visitors to The CO• can talk to experts in the arts, crafts, technology, and sciences and leave with unique souvenirs such as Michael Boonstra’s laser-etched cedar selfies. Exhibitors include HP and the HP Makerspace, the OSU DAMLab, ChickTech, DaVinci Days, Viking Mars Mission Makers, Gearbox, Corvallis Geek Olympics, Pi Dads, the Mobile Color Lab, the Thinker Tinker Trailer, and dozens more. Check out our growing list of confirmed exhibitors or apply to be an exhibitor.

Food will be available for purchase from Cheesy Stuffed Burgers.
