Hope you’ve heard– we are having a Maker Faire at PDS! The big day is coming right up, on Saturday November 15 starting at 10am.
The middle school will be represented in a couple of projects. In Karl’s service learning group, students studied early childhood by visiting some pre-school programs and our lower school. They designed an early childhood construction area for the Maker Faire. A key feature of the area will be Bloxes. These are large, sturdy and light. The youngest visitors to the Maker Faire will be able to have a area just for them, thanks to the work of these students.
Emma has been working with a small and dedicated group to program NXT Lego robots to draw. They are called “doodlebots,” in their current configuration. They’ll be moving around a white board on the floor to do their art at the Faire.
We hope you’ll join us! In addition to these projects, our Maker Faire has about 60 more makers– from cooking to crafts to workshops and art. The maker movement is a strong one and growing– and PDS will be the local hub on November 15.
