Awesome people of Orlando (and those willing to travel to Orlando). The 2013 Call for Makers is open. Bring your displays of awesomeness to Orlando Science Center by submitting your Maker application for Maker Faire Orlando by July 21st.
Orlando Mini Maker Faire is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It's a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
Mark your calendars for Oct 5!!! +Orlando Science Center was one of our awesome exhibits Year 1 (singing Tesla Coil!) and this year they'll be an amazing partner helping make Year 2 of +Orlando Mini Maker Faire even bigger and better! It's a great marriage of their community focus on learning for life and the maker focus on learning through doing. It's going to be so much fun to experience Orlando Maker Faire 2013 at Orlando Science Center!
