Super Fly Field Trip to Maker Fair Education Day

We all love the Maker Faire, a place where everyone can experience a child-like sense of wonder, fun, and funnel cake. The only downside is the crowd, which is no surprise because this is an incredibly fun weekend, but to make this experience better for the youngest fans, the Maker Faire offers Education Day. This is a chance for teachers and students to tour the fair, watch the set up, meet Makers, and try hands-on activities, in a much less congested environment. The purpose of the day is to inspire kids to create, and to encourage kids who may not work well in a traditional education environment by showing them that the Maker Faire celebrates creativity in all Makers, from those with Ph.Ds to those who never graduated from high school.

If this is something that sounds like your school  or child’s class would love – and who wouldn’t – have them register soon before spots fill. The event is May 17 – the Thursday before Maker Faire weekend – from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with 90-minute tours beginning at staggered times.

Not only is this a great learning opportunity, but kids attending will each receive a single day pass to return for more merry Making (ha!) that weekend.
