Behind the Scenes with Blue Man Group

By Byrne Harrison

Tomorrow, young creatives (13+ and, with parental guidance, even younger) will get backstage and behind-the-scenes access to the famous Las Vegas stage production of the Blue Man Group.

But they aren't the only ones who get to see how the magic is made. 

Maker Camp (from Google+ and MAKE Magazine) is back for the third annual six-week virtual summer camp for quirky tinkering, building and exploring fun STEM projects. Everyday at 11am PT (2pm ET) until August 15, millions of people around the world can join live on Maker Camp’s Google+ page for 30 DIY projects (think building glowing bikes, stroboscopes, and taking field trips to NASA, Lego and Cartoon Network studios).

On Friday, August 8th, Maker Camp will feature a team of Blue Man Group's performers and technicians who will show campers their creative process and demonstrate how their customized instruments are created and played. Want to see how it's done? Then watch Maker Camp’s weekend project, Raspberry Pirate Radio! Tune in to +MAKE at 11am PT (2pm ET) for the live field trip.
