The world-famous two day maker and creator extravaganza Maker Faire, will be returning to Newcastle’s Life Science Centre on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April, and this year everyone’s invited to take part.

The family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness is a celebration of makers, doers and thinkers – offering the opportunity to get up to date with the latest technologies and science, and to get involved in interactive projects, workshops and installations across the weekend.

Life Science Centre are keen for intrepid makers of all ages to get involved. Chief Executive Linda Conlon explains the process: “We’re looking for amazing work of all kinds – anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself spirit and wants to share their inventions, hobbies, products and DIY mentality with an appreciate audience. Previous year’s events have seen everything from car-crushing robots and fire-breathing mechanical horses to home-built computer games and crafts.”

To participate in Maker Faire, submit your plan for a project before Sunday 25th January.
