VOLUNTEER FOR THE OC MINI MAKER FAIRE!!

The first annual OC Mini Maker Faire is being brought into existence this July 14, 2012, at the Beall Center for Art + Technology, on UCI campus (10am–5pm), and it requires a team of fun, friendly, hard working volunteers to support its inaugural day! Volunteers are essential to the success of Maker Faires: they are the life support for the immense fun that is a Maker Faire, and that fun is contagious! Join our volunteer team for the day to: make new friends (and bring friends to volunteer with you!), bask in the creativity and ingenuity that radiates outward (and inward) from a Maker Faire and discover the inner “maker” within yourself! (please read below for more information)
