familychallenge1 MAKEcations: deadline extended!

Back to school is fast approaching, so it’s time to get in one more family project before the summer’s over. We’ve extended the MAKEcation challenge deadline to September 9, two days after you’re done enjoying your Labor Day weekend. We have $100 gift certificates to the Maker Shed just waiting for you to come and grab them when your family (we use the term loosely) learns to solder, hacks a cooler, or builds a backyard trebuchet. All you have to do is add photos of your project to the MAKE Flickr pool tagged “MAKEcation” to enter! If you get stuck, have questions, or just want to chat, email What are you waiting for?

Top prize in each category: $100 Maker Shed Gift Certificate

Runners up: The Best of MAKE or The Best of Instructables
