Maker Faire/MAKER Camps
Organized by the staff of MAKE Magazine, makezine.com and craftzine.com, Maker Faire brings together science, art, craft and engineering plus music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers - anyone who is embracing the DIY spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Science Olympiad participants have been present at several Maker Faires, and are encouraged to become presenters. Check out the Maker Faire Facebook page for up to date info.
MAKE Magazine has been a proud sponsor of Science Olympiad since 2007, and celebrates the DIY spirit of all the Science Olympiad "Makers." At each of the Science Olympiad National Tournaments, MAKE Magazine provided free subscriptions of its flagship publication to the technology, engineering, problem solving and science application gold medal winners from both Division B and Division C.
