The Call for Makers for Maker Faire Bay Area 2012 has been extended a few more days – the deadline is now 11:59PM PT on Tuesday, March 27th. Thanks to all the makers who have already submitted their applications – the team is going through them now. But for you makers who need a little extra time to assemble your project notes, you can breathe a sigh of relief. However don’t wait too long, as available space is filling up fast. As expected it’s shaping up to be another really exciting event. From technology to craft to education and the arts, I can’t wait to see the projects that make Maker Faire the Greatest “Show & Tell” on Earth!
And for makers looking to offset their travel costs, or in search of some additional funding to advance their project to the next level, the Road to Maker Faire Challenge, presented by Esurance, will reward one maker with a $2,000 stipend for their project. Applying to this challenge will not effect your Maker Faire application, so feel free to apply to both – however only one project per maker may apply for this award. This deadline is April 5th, so there’s still time to propose an exciting project that challenges yourself and that perhaps the world has never seen before!
