Since 2005, Make magazine has been inspiring DIYers, inventors and tinkerers all around the world with practical projects and ideas for building things with computers, electronics, robotics, metalworking, woodworking and more. In 2006, Make magazine organised the first Maker Faire in San Mateo, California, bringing its readers out of the workshop and into public to share their makes. This now legendary event then spawned others around the globe, the next of which is our own Brighton Mini Maker Faire.


The lovely people at O’Reilly (Make’s publisher) have given us 10 copies of the latest Make magazine to give away in the run up to Brighton’s first Maker Faire on September 3rd at the Dome. We’re running a prize draw via Twitter, and all you have to do is follow us and tweet about Maker Faire Brighton to enter, using @MakerFaireBTN and the #bmmf hashtag. We’ve even created this handy button for you in case you can’t think of what to say:
