They can apply online to take advantage of this incredible opportunity using the following forms: Miami Beach Teachers | MDCPS Title 1 or STEAM Designated Teachers.
Maker Faire Miami is more than just a showcase of the latest and greatest in DIY and technology; it is also an opportunity for the community to come together and share ideas, learn new skills, and be inspired to create their projects. It is a celebration of the ingenuity, resourcefulness, and creativity of the diverse talents in the region.
