Win a Copy of MAKE's "School's Out" Issue

Edited 7/20/12 The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Bonnie, our winner!

Yes, I've been talking about MAKE a lot this week. When my old friend and app creator extraordinaire Jami Becker mentioned how much she enjoys the magazine, I remembered that their PR team sent me a few extra copies for my Science Fun TV segment and I have some to give away. 

I'm going to give away two, but one goes to Jami since she gave me the idea. Actually, another one went to a camera man who was jazzed by it. But I still have a copy for one lucky reader!

In addition to being chock full of projects, some of which will be included in Maker Camp, the magazine features several young, inspiring makers. It's also full of 3D photos and the obligatory glasses with which to view the images.

Sample projects include:
glow in the dark rock candy
cigar box guitar
silk screening
chocolate-covered banana pops
backyard zip line

There's something for everyone.

If you don't win, you can still check out the projects online, but there's something to be said for a hard copy that you and the kiddos can thumb through at your leisure.

To enter to win this issue:

1. (Required) Comment once on this blog sharing something you'd like to see covered on The Maker Mom. Comment by 11:00 PM CST on July 19, 2012 for a basic entry. US addresses only. No purchase necessary to win, but the winner must be 18 years of age. The prize has a retail value of $9.99.

You can also have up to four optional extra entries; I need a separate comment for each of these items, so I can count each one as an extra entry:

2. Tweet about the entry with the hashtag #TheMakerMom and come back to let me know you did.

3. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you can keep up with The Maker Mom videos. Come back to let me know.

4. Follow The Maker Mom Board on Pinterest. Come back and leave a separate comment to let me know about this.

Although I won't be giving entries for FB likes or shares, they are totally welcome and create good karma.

Good luck!

  1. I'm excited about your new blog! I'd like to know more about summer camp options for gifted kids. Also, what programs or activities you'd recommend for the summer outside of camp.

  2. FUN! I too am excited about this new site too! I would like to see some fun activities for those COLD INDOOR months for the kindergarten/1st grade age group.

  3. Already subscribed to youtube ;)

  4. Already follow the Maker Pinterest board too!

  5. Commenting on behalf of Alyson English
    "I am loving TMM, as well! Something I'd like to see you cover is options/ideas for online STEM classes and learning. We loved the link to the MAKE online "camp" and would love to see more stuff like that (particularly for programming)."

  6. Commenting for Alyson English again:

    I also already follow TMM board on Pinterest

  7. One last entry for Alyson English: I followed the YouTube channel, as well. :)

  8. I'm not interested in winning this because I know others would use it more than I would, but I love this magazine!!!

  9. My first visit to your blog and it is so fun and interesting! from Midwest Bloggers Kristi

  10. Since this is my first visit, I'm not so sure what you've covered to date ... but I do know I'm excited to have you as a resource! I have a 10-year-old girl who is very much into math and science, so I'm looking forward to sharing the site with her. I know she would dig the zip line of the cover of the magazine!

  11. I love your new blog so much. I'd love to see (and I think you will) how we can incorporate STEM for non-gifted kids. It's seems (at least around here) that the focus goes to kids who are in a gifted program and the rest are left out or get basic info only.

  12. Awesome. I'd love to see you cover ideas for activities outside school that could work other than traditional sports activities

  13. And I subscribed to your YouTube channel

  14. Following The Maker Mom on Pinterest.

  15. I'd love an article about ideas for mixed age groups. My boys are 5 and 8 and often the younger kid activities are boring for my oldest and the older kid items are way too hard. Maybe it's unrealistic!

  16. I've got totally DIY tweens (9 & 11) so this is right up our alley!! We'd love to see you cover more active projects like the above mentioned "back yard zip line".

  17. Inexpensive Makes. Homeschooling this kid ain't cheap. ;)

  18. And I subscribe to your YouTube channel.

  19. And just followed you on Pinterest.

  20. Now I'm just commenting 'cause I love capcha codes. ;)
