Motor City’s fourth annual Maker Faire Detroit is taking place next month, on July 27 and 28 at The Henry Ford, and there are still a couple of days left to submit your project and participate as a maker.

Maker Faire Detroit is scouting for all kinds of projects, but in particular looking for exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things. Here are just a few of things they’re seeking:

Student projects
Arduino projects
Raspberry Pi
Space projects
Conductive materials projects
Kit makers
Interactive art projects
Textile arts and crafts
Rockets and RC toys
Green tech
Radios, vintage computers, and game systems
Electric vehicles
Shelter (tents, domes, etc.)
Unusual tools or machines

Why not show off what you make and share your project with the Midwest maker community? Applications are open through Friday, June 14. Apply today!

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    I took 7 people to the maker faire in Detroit last year. I had been the year before ( with four people) and have been to the San Fran Maker faire( buying tickets for another 6-8 people). LAST YEARS DETROIT MAKER FAIR WAS HORRIBLE. I wanted to ask for my money back. There was little that was technical about it. People made crafts and were selling them, otherwise little was available and you travel far within the museum to see so little, and last year to see such pablum.
