Make: KC has issued a call for makers for their upcoming Riverfest 2011 Mini Maker Faire to be held August 19-21 in Parkville, MO.

This year’s theme is Art, Innovation, & Fanciful Machines designed to encourage a Steampunk presence. We hope to see Art Cars this year along with Trebuchets and Catapults. We are even looking forward to bringing out an Archimedies Death Ray once used by local Space Pirates. We expect more of the fun stuff from last year like Robots, Rockets, Electronic Contraptions, DIY Science, along with more Maker Art and Crafts.

What we are looking for

Art Cars

Robotics, CNC

Green Tech (energy production/monitoring, electric vehicles, etc)

Participatory activities (e.g., participatory activities such as silk screening or learn to solder, “Make and Takes”)
