IEEE Spectrum: Attention, Hobbyists – WIN A TRIP TO MAKER FAIRE!

IEEE Spectrum: Attention, Hobbyists – WIN A TRIP TO MAKER FAIRE!

Want to win a trip to Maker Faire? IEEE Spectrum has a fantastic contest –

Do you have a terrific electronics project you’ve built at home? If so, we want to hear from you.

IEEE Spectrum and Make magazines are joining forces to call attention to the coolest and cleverest do-it-yourself projects. If you’ve conceived and built something that you’d like to share with the combined readerships of Spectrum and Make–more than a million people–let us know about it.

To enter, send a brief description of your project and include an estimate of how much it cost. Throw in a photo, a parts list, and a schematic. Mail them to: Spectrum/Make DIY Contest, 3 Park Ave., 17th Floor, New York, NY 10016-5997, U.S.A. The entry deadline is 15 March 2007.

If you win, you’ll receive full coverage of your project in the print and/or online editions of both Spectrum and Make, as well as airfare and accommodations to attend the next “Maker Faire.” That’s Make magazine’s annual jamboree for do-it-yourselfers, 19 to 20 May 2007 at the San Mateo, Calif., Fairgrounds, where you will describe and demonstrate your project.

IEEE Spectrum magazine is the flagship publication of the IEEE, the world’s largest professional technology association. It is a monthly magazine for technology innovators, business leaders, and the intellectually curious. Spectrum explores future technology trends and the impact of those trends on society and business.
