I’m so excited to tell you about a great way to celebrate creativity and imagination.
It’s the 2nd annual MakerFest coming to Lakewood, August 9th!
It’s a FREE, all ages event, and it would be a super fun activity to do as a family. Register and show off your creation!
What can you make? Suggested categories include alternative energy, art, data collection, electronics & technology, gaming, mechanical things, photo, practical ideas, robotics, sewing, sculpture and video, but the only limit is your imagination. I think this would be a super fun excuse to get your homeschool group or Scout pals together this summer, too!
You can also just attend the event as a visitor. Meet the makers, be inspired by their inventions, and catch the making bug. There will be kids’ activities and maker presentations, including a 3D printing demonstration courtesy of Gig Harbor Library, which has the system’s only 3D printers. Also, the college’s science dome will be open.
It’s all happening the 9th at Pierce College from 1-5PM. You can get more information and register your project here!
Maker Fest is brought to you by our friends at the Pierce College Library system, who also proudly sponsored this post.
