This is the third year in a row that I’ve organized an outing of teachers to go to the Maker Faire in NYC at the Hall of Science in Queens. (Bonus bargain-shopper tip: Get a Sunday Family Pass of 5 tix for $70)
Here are a few ways to score free tickets:
— There are 250 free tickets available (first-come, first-served basis) for the Maker Faire Education Community. In order to receive a free ticket, please complete the following:
1. Fill out this short survey to join our Maker Faire Education Community
2. Email a photo and short (1-3 sentence) description of something that you have made (either inside or outside of the classroom, with or without your students to firstname.lastname@example.org
— There are also free tickets available if you join Maker Faire’s Maker Corps Program. There is a separate sign-up link here: http://makercorpatworldmakerfaire2013.eventbrite.com/
— There is an Educator Meetup on Thursday, September 19 from 4-7pm at the Hall of Science. I think all attendees will get a pass to the Maker Faire (though I’m not 100% certain).
