Open call for Makers - Makertorium - 27th April 2013

Hey Folks,

just wanted to get in touch to let you know about a fantastic event that's happening later this year.

The "Makertorium" is happening at Te Papa on 27th April and we'd LOVE you to be there...

Makertorium is a free Maker event containing spectacles, exhibits, hands-on workshops and a showcase of kiwi maker culture courtesy of innovators and Makerspaces from across New Zealand.

Visitors will see sumo robots, flying machines and an array of 3D printers in action, with outdoor spectacles that will amaze and delight. Come to the 3D Printing Petting Zoo, play with LEDs, Microcontrollers, Wires and Widgets, meet Crafty Folk or get hands-on with workshops for Makers of all ages.

Makers will also be able to make their own rockets or enter the Eggs Prize, a competition for school teams to move a free-range egg through challenges using ingenuity, engineering and design.

We'll be unveiling the MakerCrate, a Makerspace built inside a shipping container - which will showcase all the latest digital fabrication tools and outline it's journey for 2013.

We'll have PixelBrid Craft & Electronics workshops on the day so you can come, participate and learn something new!

Makertorium - the first event of it’s kind in New Zealand - is a joint venture between The Wellington Makerspace, Makers Org NZ, Mohawk Media, SketchChair, and Pixelbrid, supported by Wellington City Council and Te Papa to promote maker, creator and indie culture in New Zealand.

We're very excited to be putting on this showcase of NZ Maker talent and if you're interested in taking part or helping out on the day please fill in this form and we'll be in touch. All types of crazy projects welcome! Also feel free to spread the word through your networks :)

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
