You know we're big fans of DIY culture and makers and tinkerers, so we are just super excited that the folks at Maker Faire are branching out this year and hosting Maker Faires in Detroit and NYC for the first time ever. For those who need a reminder, Maker Faires are two-day, family-friendly events that celebrate the Do-It-Yourself mindset. They're for creative, resourceful people of all ages who like to tinker and love to make things.
That's you, right? We thought so. Thus, we've got two special requests for the core community. Check it out:
1. APPLY. Calling all tinkerers, makers, and dreamers. If you've got a great hack that you want to share with the world, especially if it's something you think might transform kids into maker-juniors, then please apply. The call is open for Detroit and NYC until May 31 and June 30 respectively. Go for it!
2. RECRUIT. If you've got connects with maker communities in the fabulous cities of Detroit or New York, then please let the Maker Faire team know. Pop an email to Sherry or Dale. They're eager to spread MAKE culture and we are too.
