Event description

Description

Maker Faire, the greatest show (and tell) on earth showcases MAKERS from all around the world who make robots, cupcake race cars, 3D Printers, crafts, puppets, clothing and much more.


We're proud to promote sustainability for a better future wherever we can at Maker Faire, but need your help! You can get involved in helping the Green Travelers team teach folks how to "think before they throw" at the recycling bin stations throughout the festival. By answering questions about which items can be recycled, composted, and discarded, you not only help us divert waste, but teach better habits for all participants. We'll help you become an expert with training before the Faire, and you get a good look at the behind the scenes at Maker Faire!

For Friday's shift, you will be physically lifting and carrying our Clearstream Recycling Bins to their locations and helping with construction and set up of all the sustainability tools for Maker Faire.

We are using Eventbrite to manage the scheduling and Entry Passes for our Green Travelers. You are able to select 1 or more Entry Passes for each of the available shifts from Friday through Sunday. Once you select this Entry Pass we will expect to see you for your selected shift(s).
