Nerds For Nature will again have an exhibit booth at this year’s Bay Area Maker Faire, May 15-17 in San Mateo (, and we're so excited... We're working on plenty of fun and educational ways to engage the public as they wander by with their tech-glazed eyes, but we need more help -- so don't miss our second-in-a-row Faire festivities!

Read this blog post for a lot more information (, and join the discussion on this meetup's comments thread below to let us know how you can help and to ask questions about the event. If you can bring sensors and related tech for our EcoSensoRama theme, that's fantastic, tell us more about it. If not, there are plenty of other ways to get involved.

There will be plenty to do throughout the weekend, so we need your assistance! If you can stop by for an hour or two to visit with folks and keep the Nerd fire burning, that would be awesome. Please fill out this Doodle Poll ( to schedule your approximate availability, and learn more about free and discounted tickets for volunteers. And if you can only visit for a bit, that's great too -- come on by and say hey.

See ya there!
