Grant Description

The U.S. Embassy in Moscow (PAS Moscow) invites proposals for a grant to organize a Maker Faire (or series of Maker Faire events in various locations) in Russia to support a growing movement that promotes innovation and learning through Яdo-it-yourselfН hands-on access to cutting-edge technologies like 3D printers and Arduino robotics. Last year, President Obama hosted the first-ever White House Maker Faire and issued a call to action to expand economic growth by spurring manufacturing, entrepreneurship, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education through events like the annual National Maker Faire. The grant recipient will be responsible for all program elements, including recruitment of event sponsors, partners, facilitators, logistical arrangements, organizing the event, and developing a sustainability plan to ensure the Maker Faire becomes an annual event.
