The LI4E Makerspace Project is an effort by Learning is for Everyone, the lead sponsor of Tampa Bay’s first ever Mini Maker Faire, to bring makerspaces to Tampa Bay . Not waiting for makerspace to start making things, team members are hard at work and play in 2012 Red Bull Creation Contest , armed with a “Bullduino” and loads of creativity, hoping to make it into the top 12 makers or maker teams, who get to compete in a 72-hour build starting July 19.
After a public voting period, top scoring teams get to take their creations the
World Maker Faire 2012, in September. Besides getting to showcase their maker awesomeness, and hang with other great techies and artists, Red Bull Creation contestants will be vying for the top prize of $10,000 - pretty decent seed money for a Makerspace!
You can follow along the LI4E Makerspace Project team’s adventure on their Facebook page . And check back here soon to see a video of their creation!
