Dear fellow hackers & makers,

My name is Marc Teusch (part of syn2cat Level2 hackerspace), and I am currently
the coordinator of the BEE CREATIVE[1] project for the ministry of education in
Luxembourg via the SCRIPT[2] team. BEE CREATIVE is a project that implements
makerspaces in schools in Luxembourg (starting from age 8 on). We currently are
counting 30 makerspaces nationwide and our network is spreading. Every year, we
organise a large MakerFest event where the public (and students) can attend (for
free) scientific and tech workshops, talks and demonstrations.

With this email, I’d like to invite you and your FabLab to participate in our
yearly MakerFest:SummerEdition which will take place from June 21st to 22nd,
2018 at Lycée Vauban in Gasperich[3]. During these 2 days, we will offer
workshops, talks and demonstrations which will trigger youngsters’ interest in
science and technology. These workshops should attract kids starting from 8
years up to 20 years of age. Our goal is to present the makerspace movement and
maker scene of Luxembourg and its surroundings by showing off some cool stuff to
the public. The main topic of this summer event will be “Making great things for

We expect around 3000 visitors during these 2 days and I believe that it would
be a great opportunity to have you amongst our exhibitors. We can offer you a
(free) booth plus your staff can have access to free lunch and drinks during the
event. It would be an honour for us to have you with the MakerFest and be a part
of our science campaign that we run.

For your convenience, I’ve attached the Call For Papers to this email and should
you have any further question, do not hesitate to contact me directly.

I really hope that this event interests you and your FabLab, and we would really
enjoy and be honoured to count you amongst our exhibitors.

I hope to hear from you, and until then, I present you my best regards.

Call for papers MakerFest:Summer Edition

Who are we?
BEE CREATIVE[1] is a initiative of the Luxembourgish Ministry of Education, coordinated by SCRIPT[2] and SNJ[3], to develop makerspaces and bring the maker movement to schools and daycare structures in Luxembourg.
Started in 2014, the BEE CREATIVE project sums up to 20 makerspaces in secondary schools, 6 makerspaces in primary school environments and over 200 enthusiastic makers providing support for the latter.

Every year, BEE CREATIVE organises a large faire where school populations and the large public can get in direct contact with maker workshops, talks and experiments. 
During these so-called MakerFests, the main objective is to raise awareness and passion for science, technology and making in general, specially for children starting from 10 years of age.

Every year, we try to find a theme which we can attribute our MakerFest to.
As 2018 has the flavour of exploring outer earth regions, we will dedicate our MakerFest:SummerEdition accordingly to the theme of space exploration. As such, our theme will be

		"Making great things for space"

As this MakerFest is an opportunity to bring all makers of Luxembourg and its surroundings together in one large happening, we would like to invite you and your association to this years' edition! In fact, we can offer you the possibility to have your own booth for showing off experiments, engaging visitors in a workshop or passionate our students with a state of the art talk. The only restriction is that we do not allow sales on any of the booths except for food or drinks. You are allowed, however, to bring flyers, visit cards, posters or any other kind of advertisement you like to distribute on site.

As such, we would love to hear from you and the activity/ies you would like to offer to our expected 2000 visitors. During the event, you and your staff can profit from free lunch and drinks, and your booth will come for no charge. Furthermore, we offer you a direct contact with our makerspace population to exchange ideas and get support for your project(s). Sounds interesting? Then please fill out the section below and send back your papers until May 11, 12:00 latest.
