Calling All Makers!

We're currently accepting participant proposals for Maker Fest 2017. Come show off the cool stuff you're making - from bikes to origami to robots!

We are particularly interested in participants that can engage the many attendees we're expecting with something that they can make and/or take home. There is no fee to participate, and we're offering stipends to cover the cost of materials used at the event. Participants are also welcome to sell goods at the Maker Fest. Submit your proposals here!
