Call For Makers: Maker Faire Bay Area Needs You

Our yearly call for makers is now open! This is your chance to have your project considered for display at the Bay Area Maker Faire coming up in May. You have to apply because there are just so many incredible projects and makers, and unfortunately there’s not enough space to have everyone.

To get a taste of what the Faire is like, check out these videos from popular youtube channels that visited last year.
