Details

The NJ Drone User Group will be joining Hoboken's MakerBar (http://MakerBar.com) on a fun filled annual two day event at the New York Hall of Science presenting our group by talking and educating the general public on the safety and entertainment of flying drones for fun or business.

We've presented at this show for the past 3 years ( http://MakerFaire.com/maker/entry/58134 - that's me on the left of the bottom left hand image) and, by no means am I understating this, IT'S A BLAST.. We meet all sorts of different 'friendly' people from all over the world (100,000 attendees anticipated) interested in Tech, STEM, Hobbies, /

What is Maker Faire (http://alturl.com/bz2h3)? They call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth. It's part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new! As a celebration of the Maker Movement, it’s a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Faire gathers together tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. Makers come to show their creations and share their learnings. Attendees flock to Maker Faire to glimpse the future and find the inspiration to become Makers themselves.

We'll need members at the booth to talk to the public about UAVs and where we fly, so we need you to commit to at least a couple of hours Saturday or Sunday (or both.) You then get to roam around the show and eat some GREAT food and, if you help with the wrap (close down), join us for 'eats in Flushing'.. We expect to get some free tickets (for registered helpers only) so don't buy any $35 tickets yet (I'll let you know if and when) - SO RSVP Today...
