To summarize Maker Faire briefly, it is the world’s largest Do-It-Yourself festival, celebrating the inventions, technologies, arts, crafts, literature, science, hobbies, and ideas of anyone who likes to create. Chicago Northside Maker Faire focuses on inspiring students to work with their hands and show others to do the same. We welcome especially hands-on experiences, workshops, learning and teaching of any form, and young makers!
Here are the ways you can participate:
1) SHOW your stuff! If you or some you know have a cool project to share, please SUBMIT A PROPOSAL.
Proposals are due by April 1st.2) VOLUNTEER for CNS Maker Faire HERE. We need help signing in guests at the door, handing out goodies to those who donate, helping makers setup, and directing traffic. All volunteers get free lunch and free hugs!
3) ATTEND the fifth annual Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire, bring your friends and family! Reserve your FREE tickets today. (Donations are welcome through Eventbrite and at the door if you wish to help support those who are unable to pay, and keep this a free event.)
4) Any individuals or companies who wish to CNSmakerfaire for more information.
Follow us on Facebook and @CNSmakerfaire and spread the word! Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you all there!
