Answering one of my questions from the announcement of the National Maker Faire (June 12-13 in Washington, D.C.) was how projects would be (or were) selected. Turns out at least some spots are still open.
Interested Makers will need to complete this form by May 8th. It requests a great deal of information (including project description, logistics, and demographics, all of it to be expected) and includes a release. While there will be a section focused on Makers from the Washington, D.C. area, organizers are committed to considering Makers from communities across the country. Not all applications will be accepted, but Makers should consider other Faires taking place in other parts of the country.
If you’re aren’t going to submit a project for consideration, do think about attending the Faire next month on the campus of the University of the District of Columbia.
