Calling All Creative Types for Red Bull Creation 2015!

Do you like to work with your hands? Are you awesome at coming up with ideas and inventions? If you answered yes to either of these questions, we have an awesome event for you! 

Coming up September 23rd thru 26th Red Bull will be coming to town for Red Bull Creation 2015. Here's what that's all about. "Red Bull Creation is a 72-hour creative competition that annually assembles the country’s best and brightest makers, hackers, and inventors to innovate around a “secret topic”." After your team works together for 3 days on your creation, there is a "show and tell" type ceremony on September 26th. This day is open to the public and is your chance to show your creation off to judges and the public. The winners will receive an array of prizes, including tools, cash, and the chance to make their creation a reality. There will be prizes for first, second and third places. 

If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, here's how you can get started! First, assemble a team. Think of all of the creative, awesome people you know and get them on board! There is no limit on how many people can be on your team. Red Bull suggests having a whole bunch of people, as many as you can get. We suggest you keep it limited to people that will be able to work well together. The less time you spend arguing and deliberating, the more time you have to create! If you've worked together before, even better! And, make sure you have people that aren't just good at coming up with ideas, but they also know how to use tools and actually make stuff. Once you have your team together, head over to RedBullCreation.com and register! You don't have to have all of your team members before you register, but we suggest at least making sure you have a few people. You don't want to go at it alone!

The topic announcement party will be on September 23rd at The Old Miami and the show & tell takes place at Recycle Here! in Detroit. The time in between will be spent in your own shop or garage working on your creation. For more information on the timeline and the event overall click here.

This sounds like an awesome event! Although we might not be creative enough to participate in Red Bull Creation, we can't wait to head out to the reveal and see what all of you have come up with!
