Are you attending the 2nd annual World Maker Faire this weekend in Queens, NY? If not, reconsider! You won’t regret it. If you are coming, now there’s even more incentive to enjoy your trip to the NY Hall of Science. As part of RadioShack’s The Great Create campaign, we’re challenging all MAKE readers out there to complete any of our Weekend Projects and to bring your completed project (or any derivative mod thereof) to the Faire. In return, you’ll win a FREE Maker’s Notebook ($20 value, pictured above), courtesy of the Maker Shed, as well as some additional schwag (think swanky apparel!). To show of your warez, stop by the MAKE magazine booth inside of the Maker Shed and talk to anyone inside the booth to claim your prize.

If you can’t make it out to World Maker Faire, never fear! The first 20 online readers who send us an email with info, photos, or video of a completed Weekend Project will also receive a FREE Maker’s Notebook! Feel free to send us a little story about your experiences and we’ll feature you here and in our Weekend Projects Newsletter.

We’ll have another project launching this week, so sign up below for the Newsletter to get the scoop on new projects as soon as they launch. And we look forward to seeing you – and your projects! – at World Maker Faire!

    I have a project I made from Make magazine – a spectrograph ( It’s not an official “Weekend Project”, but would it qualify anyway?

      It wouldn’t qualify for this giveaway, which is just for the Weekend Projects series on Make: Projects, but we’d love to see your build anyways. We love seeing the work and hearing about builders’ experiences whenever you do a project on MAKE, especially if you makes changes, encounter problems you need to find workaround for, etc. Feel free to send to the email address in the post.
