American Maker Update

American Maker Update

This week, we’re finalizing our list of makers to appear in the American Maker program at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago on September 20th. Already, we have makers who will be showing a homebuilt submarine and a four-person bicycle, plus music and robotic projects. In addition, we’ll be featuring a performance of musical Tesla coils.

If you’re a Chicago-area maker and you’d like to participate in this LIVE SHOW and TELL at the Museum, please apply at:

Also, Mister Jalopy will be the host of the American Maker program. The panel will consist of:

* Colleen Ludwig, Artist and Associate Professor, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
* Marc de Vinck, Product Designer and MAKE blogger
* Dale Dougherty, MAKE, Editor and Publisher

The panelists will pick their favorite maker of the day and we’ll award a $500 prize.

If you live in Chicago, please plan to drop by the Museum on September 20 between the hours of 10 am and 4pm and see American Maker for yourself.
