Maker Faire/MAKER Camps
Organized by MAKE Magazine, makezine.com and craftzine.com, Maker Faire 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. These family-friendly events showcase the amazing work of all kinds of makers - anyone who is embracing the DIY spirit and wants to share their accomplishments/creations with an appreciative audience. Science Olympiad participants have been present at several Maker Faires, and are encouraged to become presenters. Check out the Maker Faire page for the latest site info.
