BBC World News correspondent LJ Rich visits London’s first Maker Faire, the Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire — and it seems like she has a really good time! Plus she gets the Maker Faire history right, and even pans over our map of Maker Faires around the world.


The Road to Maker Faire Challenge will award $2,500 to one winner to bring his or her project to World Maker Faire on Sep. 21 & 22, 2013 in New York. Use the funding for materials, transport, or anything else you might need to get to Maker Faire. Applications are due by 11:59pm PT on August 5, 2013.
