Maker Faire announced Thursday it is now accepting project submissions for this year’s festival.
Organizers expect to feature more than 700 Makers and their organizations in the seventh annual event that will be held in San Mateo, California. More than 100,000 people from all over the world are expected to attend.
The event is a physical extension of MAKE magazine, a publication in which the do-it-yourself mindset is glorified. Projects such as extreme marshmallow cannons, flame-throwing flowers, and all kinds of robots are nurtured via step-by-step directions.
Last year, Menlo Park-based had an entire warehouse of projects that varied from to turbo-charged bikes. This year, they will be offering special membership rates for people who want to use their tools to make their projects.
Other cities have begun to host mini-maker faires in Detroit, New York, and Kansas City.
The Bay Area Maker Faire will be held on May 19 and 20 in the San Mateo Event Center.
