Maker Stalls Are you a Maker? A maker can be any person or group, who invents, designs, creates, and/or builds anything with the goal of learning, teaching, inspiring, or improving the state of their community or world. Tinker with robots? Launch marshmallow rockets? Design your own clothes or cards? Invent things? Decorate cakes? Make mini-figurines? Well, then you are a maker! Makers can create things that are useful, fun, or just quirky.

Q & A Do I need to be there from 10:00-4:00? Yes, if you have a Maker stall. This is why it’s good to work with a team. Workshops are one hour each and performances may be as short as 15 minutes. Some of my supplies may cost a little. How should I pay for them? You may request small donations of up to 5 AED for supplies at the event. Otherwise, contact you parent council to see if they can sponsor you. My friends and I make great comic books, mini-figurines, dresses, paper clip foosball tables…can we sell them? Yes, you may. Anything you sell must be made by you and there is a small fee (120 AED) to sell at Maker Day Dubai. My project is great! Can I win a prize? Yes! Small prizes will be given for categories such as best use of recycled materials, most surprising, most useful, most fun, and most beautiful…
Want to join in the fun? Next steps • Identify your team. 10:00-4:00 is a long day!

This may be a teacher or parent. • Complete the application found on the invitation to participate. • Organize your supplies and plan a fun activity for visitors.
