Maker Faire Pittsburgh puts out call for creators
The call for makers is open for the third annual Maker Faire Pittsburgh, Oct. 14 and 15 at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and Buhl Community Park on Pittsburgh's North Side. This will be the first time the event, as well as admission to the Children's Museum, will be free.
Organizers will be accepting applications from individuals, groups, schools, clubs organizations and entrepreneurs interested in being a maker presenter. They welcome eclectic, diverse and forward-thinking projects and ideas that highlight the do-it-yourself tinkering spirit.
Exhibits and displays range from student projects, vintage computer and game systems, chemistry projects, puppets, kites, bicycles and textile arts and crafts to robotics, 3-D printers and milling machines, rockets and remote control toys, green tech, electric vehicles, biotech and innovative tools.
Maker Faire gathers together tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. Makers come to show their creations while attendees get a glimpse of the future and find the inspiration to become makers themselves.
Deadline is Aug. 1.
