The Call for Makers for Maker Faire Bay Area has closed and acceptance letters have been sent out. This is the really exciting part of the production, when the team begins to get a bird’s eye view of the event, and some of the programming starts to fall in place. On that note, we’re really excited to announce that MythBusters host and all-around maker extraordinaire Adam Savage will be returning to Maker Faire Bay Area this year for a talk on Sunday, May 20th. He’ll be presenting starting at 11AM, and if his talk, “Problem Solving: How I Do It” from 2010, or his hour-long talk on getting inspired from 2011 are any indication, it will be a packed house and a memorable experience. Plan to arrive early that day!

The Greatest “Show & Tell” on Earth opens in just 36 days! Early-Bird tickets are available here for a limited time.

    Exciting, yet disappointing. My 8 year old has been asking if Adam might be there, but we won’t be there on Sunday! Any chance Adam will be around on Saturday? Please?

      hi Stephanie – it looks like Adam is only speaking on Sunday, sorry. Hope you still have a great time! And thanks for reading.
