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.
