Maker Faire 2010: Call for Makers!

It’s here! We’re 17 weeks away from Maker Faire Bay Area 2010! Our Call for Makers is now open; we want to see your projects at the Faire! If you’ve come to Maker Faire before as an attendee, consider getting more involved! Show off your projects to tens of thousands of hungry makers! It’s all of our favorite time of the year, and we’re so thrilled to be ramping up for it again this year. So head on over and submit your entry for participating in Maker Faire. The deadline for submissions is March 31st, and space is limited.

Organized by the staff of Make magazine, Make: Online and CRAFT, Maker Faire is a newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft and engineering plus music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers – anyone who is embracing DIY and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.

We encourage you to join the fun and enter a project to exhibit.

They also announced the dates for this summer’s Maker Faire Detroit (July 31 and August 1) and this fall’s Maker Faire New York (September 25 and 26), so exciting! If you’re not convinced, we have plenty to share from past Maker Faires in our Maker Faire archives on Make: Online and CRAFT, where we share the videos photos, and more from onsite and around the web.
