As an “E-STEAM” (Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Agriculture, and Math) school, The Learning Center! emphasizes learning through doing. Providing opportunities for participation in the Maker Faire Movement is the perfect way to engage and excite students about the world around them. “Our goal is to help students to make innovative, positive change in our world,” said school director, Mary Jo Dyre, “and a School Maker Faire is the perfect way to celebrate making and its potential for positive innovation.”
As students work on plans for their own Maker projects for The School Maker Faire, The Learning Center is spreading the word for a call for Makers from the greater Community of Learners. The School Maker Faire isn’t just a student showcase, it is a chance for Makers of all ages to come together and share the joy of creating. The school invites the public to submit a project proposal and be a part of The School Maker Faire. Demonstrate a craft, showcase an invention, teach others how to make something, bring something edible, or just come check out the fun! The sky is really the limit at a Maker Faire!
The first step to being a part of The School Maker Faire is to visit The Learning Center website: www.naturallygrownkids.org. On the home page, you’ll see The School Maker Faire logo and a link to “Submit a Project Proposal”. Contact The Learning Center office at 828-835-7240 for more information.
“Makers are going to make” at the School Maker Faire on Thursday, March 10th, at 3:30 pm! Join the fun as part of the Maker Team.
