Craft Lake City’s DIY Engineer category is one of the public’s favorite elements of the Do-It-Yourself Festival. DIY Engineers are housed in Google Fiber’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Building on Gallivan Plaza. We at Craft Lake City are dedicated to empowering DIY Engineers interested in STEM-based work with educational opportunities, programming, and opportunities to sell their products, at the Craft Lake City DIY Festival and at other events and workshops throughout the year.

DIY Engineers display interactive science projects, inventions, incubator, modular synths, prototypes, and technology projects. Craft Lake City also partners with local businesses, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and government agencies to showcase STEM based programs.

At this year’s 2016 Craft Lake City DIY Festival, there are three categories of DIY Engineers:
  1. DIY Engineer-Tinkerer: “I am a local Utah tinkerer and/or start-up entrepreneur.  If I have a business, it’s small and aside from my family and friend volunteers, I’m the only employee.  I’m trying to showcase my technology and/or product ideas with an interactive exhibit out in front of a public audience at the 2016 Craft Lake City DIY Festival.”
  2. DIY Engineer-Institution/Non-Profit/Government: “I am an established university or institutional affiliated organization or program, non-profit organization, or government agency, who would like to showcase an interactive exhibit in front of a public audience at the 2016 Craft Lake City DIY Festival.”
  3. DIY Engineer-Business: “I am an established local Utah business or company that would like to showcase our technology and/or products with an interactive exhibit in front of a public audience at the 2016 Craft Lake City DIY Festival.”

All of the DIY Engineer categories will be housed within the Google Fiber STEM Building.  Craft Lake City understands that it might be hard for everyone to neatly fit within one of these categories.  If you have questions regarding your category selection, please call Jessica Thesing at 801-598-4749 or email her at jessica@craftlakecity.com.

Or, do you have a prototype, invention or STEM-based program you’d like to showcase at future events, and/or hold a workshop in partnership with Craft Lake City?  If so, please email us: info@craftlakecity.com or call 801.906.8521.
