CALL FOR MAKERS

CALL FOR MAKERS (now closed)
Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire
Newark Museum, Newark, NJ

Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire
The Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire is a showcase of creativity and innovation in the New Jersey and surrounding communities. The event invites makers (individuals, groups, industries and K-12 to universities) to present their projects that explore DIY (do-it-yourself) thinking, reveal their process and show how materials are pushed to their limits. Whether it’s science explorations, woodworking, robotics, beekeeping or e-textiles this event will explore it all with the Museum’s art and science collection as the ultimate ‘maker’ examples.

If you have a project that explores DIY, or shows people how they can make things themselves, we’d love to have you apply. If you are a Young Maker under the age of 18, please have your (adult) project mentor submit your project for you.
