Maker Faire

Greetings Maker Corps at Maker Faire Alumni! I hope you are excited about the upcoming World Maker Faire NY on September 21st  and September 22nd at the New York Hall of Science.  As you know, the Maker Corps at World Maker Faire program helps you to make an invaluable contribution to the success of Maker Faire by providing  a platform for you to learn about Make, Maker Faire and the Maker Movement as well as enhance your DIY skills.  In addition, you will get behind-the-scenes experience, and help make the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth happen! 

Come volunteer or just come for the show!!


This year, we are using Eventbrite to manage the scheduling and ticketing for our Maker Corps at World Maker Faire members.  You are able to select 1 ticket for each of the available 4 hour shifts from Thursday through Sunday.  Once you select this “ticket” we will expect to see you for that shift.  Once you have signed up for your shifts, you will receive regular weekly emails with any important updates and once you arrive onsite, you will receive your actual assignment. You can sign up for as many shifts as you like!! If you create an Eventbrite account, you can even make changes to your schedule if required.


In addition to selecting your onsite schedule in 4-hour blocks of time, you will need to complete the online training modules learning about the Maker Movement and Maker Faire Training.

Your 4-hour shift gets you a Maker Corps at World Maker Faire t-shirt and your One Day Pass.

Your 8-hour shift gets you a Maker Corps at World Maker Faire t-shirt and a Weekend Pass.

Of course, our hope is that you will enjoy working with us at Maker Faire and want to participate throughout the weekend. We’re happy to work with you on your schedule in terms of breaks and time off to experience Maker Faire on your own.

Sign up for your shifts here:

 We will send out regular weekly updates beginning next week and we thank you for extending an invitation to your friends and/or family members to participate in this years’ Maker Faire too! Do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions! Looking forward.   Thanks, Sonia     Sonia Russell, Recruiter Maker Corps at World Maker Faire NY 2013
