Makers Faire

May 14th from 5-8pm

Are you an inventor? Do you Make things? Do you have a crazy contraption that you’ve been dying to share with the world?  Then we’d like to invite you to show it off at the 4th Annual PS87 Maker Faire. Sign Up Here to tell us what you’d like to bring. 

What is a Maker Faire? A Maker Faire is Show and Tell for Techy, Mechanical, Architectural, Science-ish Creations. Think of it as arts and crafts mixed with power tools and maybe a little electronics (though that’s not required).

This event is an opportunity for PS 87 families and teachers to show off their inventions and creations and to introduce our kids to STEM through building.

 

What kinds of things? There are all sorts of things that can be included in a Maker Faire - from Cardboard Pinball to Soda Bottle Science Experiments to Light-up Greeting Cards.  Dream them up and make them!

 

Are there any rules? Just the basics….first, absolutely nothing dangerous! No fire, sparks or explosions. Let’s skip the fire breathing dragon car this time!  Oh, and the second is there is no selling. This is a show and tell ONLY.

 

Can grown-ups help? Yes!!  We want to see all those co-creations between kids and the adults who love them!  Use this as an excuse to build something crazy with your kids this weekend.


Do I need to bring enough for everyone? No!  We will have hands-on activities from our invited guests.   You don’t have to do anything more than show off your cool creation (and soak up the admiration of the crowds!).

This event is FREE and open exclusively to our school community.  If you have questions or would like to help out in some way, please email Abigail aaej@me.com
