The Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire is a collaborative effort of Cool Science, the Manitou Art Center, Pikes Peak Community College, Pikes Peak Library District, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and Make . It is also the culminating event in the week of the Colorado Springs Cool Science Festival.

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
