Maker Faire is coming soon to Pacific Heights on January 25th and 26th!
What is Maker Faire?
Maker Faire is part science fair, part country fair and part something entirely new. Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft. Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, and students. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and share what they have learned. It’s a chance for students to show others an area they are really interested in. It can be anything from baking to robots, exploding volcanoes to doll dresses. If you can make it with your hands and it’s something original, then it fits in Maker Faire.
Schedule of Events:
Wednesday, January 25th: students will be given the opportunity to create their project. Please ensure your child has the supplies he/she needs to build his/her project.
Thursday January 26th: students will be displaying their work in the gym, multi-purpose room and throughout our halls. In the morning, students will be viewing each other’s projects.
Parents are invited to view our projects in the afternoon from 1 – 2 pm.
**Note: If there are any parent “Makers” who would like to display their work as well, please contact Ms. Chohan by email or phone.
Please contact your child’s classroom teacher if you would like to volunteer on Wednesday, January 25th to assist student makers in the class. Please note, that if you are volunteering it is to assist all other students not only your child.
If you have any other questions, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
