The summer of making has kicked off to a great start and the heat is on! Check out the Summer of Making for a chance to win a laptop, Amazon gift cards, a Sparkfun electronics kit, and most importantly, a pizza party. You have the chance to explore your creative genius by making something, anything really, and submitting it to the teen website for a shot at a prize. Pass by the ideaLAB and you’ll see the Summer of Making Meter. 

You've already made it half-way to the goal of 40 projects, so keep going! 40 projects gives you an invite to a pizza party to celebrate your projects, hard work, and a chance to meet the other summer makers. From now until August 13th, if you are between the ages of 12 and 19, you can build, design, compose, or even imagine the projects you cook up either in the LAB or at home. Some ideas are already on display on the Teen website. From colorful graphic art displays, to innovative transportation of small animals, to music videos, and even a mind-reading computer simulation, check out these sweet projects to get some ideas of your own. Check out Pinterest for even more ideas.
