Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire: August 10, 2013

Once again, the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire is coming to Providence, and it’s just under a month away. The call to makers is still open, and we’ve still got room for makers, so please apply if you’ve got an awesome project you want to share!

Just like last year, we’ll be embedded in AS220‘s Foo Fest, a yearly fundraiser/block party held on Empire Street in Providence. Many years ago, it started out life as the Fools Ball, and as the date drifted further away from April Fools’ Day, the name evolved.

There’s no additional charge to attend the RI Mini Maker Faire, and Foo Fest’s admission will be $7. Kids under 10 get in free.

The RI Mini Maker Faire will be 1pm-11pm on Aug. 10, 2013, indoors at the Pell Chafee Performance Center, 87 Empire St., Providence, RI, 02903. Hope to see you there!

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.

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
