Maker Faire isn't making its Phoenix debut until October, but organizers are on the lookout for local submissions through July 11.
The creatives behind the fair, which began in San Mateo, California in 2006, say they hope to bring together local creators of art, science, craft, and engineering backgrounds into an energized public forum to show off their work.
The first step to become a part of the Downtown showcase is to enter. Individuals with a passion to craft or groups that have completed a project (look at a list of examples) need to submit an entry explaining your project and yourself. We're talking robotics, puppets, and rockets, to name a few.
And in the meantime, check out the video of Satya Kraus, a California Maker Faire participant below:
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
