The application details and links are on the EMP Museum website. Click here to apply to exhibit, present, or perform at Seattle Mini Maker Faire.

The application deadline is January 10th, but don’t wait until the last minute!  The application asks for a lot of information and we’d like to talk with you about your application to help us decide which projects to accept to the Greatest Show and Tell in Washington!

Apply now to exhibit all weekend to demo your projects through booths, installations, workshops, presentations, and/or performances and includes non-commercial and commercial makers. Makers will be selected based on how unique and impressive their projects are. We are particularly looking for exhibits that are interactive and highlight the process of making things.

This is a fairly detailed application and will take between 15-20 minutes to complete. You will be asked to submit a project name, description, contact information, photos, and some additional specifics on your exhibit requirements. Please complete the application with as much information as possible and have fun with it.

Spotlight on Sponsors: OpenBeam & The Metrix Open Hardware Alliance

Thank you to OpenBeam & The Metrix Open Hardware Alliance for generously sponsoring the Seattle Mini Maker Faire for two years running!! Make sure to check out their booth this weekend!!
OpenBeam & The Metrix Open Hardware Alliance is a loose knit group of friends working on Open Source Hardware.  The group is loosely affiliated with and can be found hanging out at Metrix Create Space.
OpenBeam is a low cost miniature extruded aluminum construction system, similar to the larger T-Slot systems used in industry for automations project and machine framing.  It uses standard M3 nuts instead of proprietary T-nuts and injection molding to lower the cost of joining components.  Recently, in close collaboration with Johann Rocholl, OpenBeam completed the design for the OpenBeam Kossel Pro and the OpenBeam Kossel Reprap.  These Open Source 3D Printers highlight the versatility of using OpenBeam in the desktop automations and robotics field.
The Axios is an Open Source ergonomic keyboard featuring modular components and a design to better match the hand’s natural resting position reducing strain in both the wrists and fingers. The Axios is user programmable as well, allowing a near infinite number of layouts to be stored on the board itself and requiring no special drivers. It’s modular nature allows for a wide degree of adjustability and customization giving the user more control over their comfort and laser etched backlit keys let the user make it their own.
Members of the group can be found at Metrix Create Space, Seattle’s premiere retail maker space.  Open noon to midnight, 7 days a week, Metrix is located on Capitol Hill and includes a wide array of tools for bringing creations to life.
