National Maker Faire 2015, June 12-13 at The University of the District of Columbia - UDC

Submit your project for the National Maker Faire 2015.

NOTE: We're nearly at our target number of Maker submissions; do you still have a project to show and tell at the National Maker Faire? By popular demand, we've extended the deadline for our Call for Makers, which will now close on May 18th.

Entries submitted during the extended phase will be reviewed based on available space.

We'll let you know by email if we have any questions and if your project is accepted. We'll make every attempt to fit in everyone who submits a proposal that fits the goals of this event: to bring together science, art, craft, engineering, and music in an exciting public event.

Questions about this form? Email us at info@nationalmakerfaire.com.

If your project is included, we'll use the information you supply here on the web site and in other materials.
