Cognizant at World Maker Faire 2012Thanks to World Maker Faire sponsor and O’Reilly partner Cognizant Technology Solutions for producing and posting this cool WMFNY 2012 retrospective video. If you were at the New York Hall of Science in September, you probably noticed Cognizant’s presence at the Young Makers Pavillion.

Together with Intel, the MacArthur Foundation, and O’Reilly Media, Cognizant is a partner in the nonprofit Maker Education Initiative, which provides grants historically ranging from $15,000-$30,000 to community organizations running “hands-on, Maker-movement inspired programs in an after-school or summer camp setting, or within the school day when conditions allow.”   The deadline for stage one of the 2013 grant cycle is coming up on December 15.  Click through at the bottom of this post for more information.

If you have a young maker approaching college age, Cognizant also offers twenty $5,000 scholarships based on three-minute project build videos. The deadline for the 2013 applications is March 31.
