You have until March 31st to submit your project to exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area 2010!

The first step to participating in Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools. Please provide a short description of what you make and what you will actually bring to Maker Faire. Please link to photographs or videos of what you make. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things.

Here’s some suggested ideas for topics that we’re looking for:

  • Student Projects
  • Robotics
  • Music Performance and Participation
  • 3D Printers and CNC Mill
  • Textile Arts and Crafts
  • Home Energy Monitoring
  • Rockets and RC Toys
  • Sustainability
  • Green Tech
  • Radios, Vintage Computers and Game Systems
  • Electronics
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Biology/Biotech and Chemistry Projects
  • Food and Beverage Makers
  • Robotics
  • Puppets
  • Kites
  • Bicycles
  • Shelter (Tents, Domes, etc.)
  • Unusual Tools or Machines
  • How to Fix Things or Take them Apart (Vacuums, Clocks, Washing Machines, etc.)

Once accepted, you’ll get free admission to Maker Faire and a space to show your project! If you don’t have a project to exhibit but still want to be involved, consider volunteering! Our volunteers help make the Faire the best it can be, and it’s fun and free, too! Check out the Call For Makers for more info.

Don’t forget that tickets to Maker Faire Bay Area 2010 are on sale now in the Maker Shed!
