MakerFaire at Riverbend

Last Friday, the middle school students at Riverbend put on a MakerFaire for 1st through 6th graders.  The middle school students decided on the activities for the MakerFaire, made prototypes, and researched and identified materials. There was a budget to adhere to and lots of other tasks involved in order to prepare.
MakerFaires are held all over the world and are places of creativity and experiential learning.  At a MakerFaire you can expect to make several projects and experience something new in the areas of design, technology, and innovation.
