Library hosts NJ Makers Day, March 21

The Collingswood Public Library will participate in New Jersey Makers Day on Saturday, March 21, 2020!

The purpose of this statewide celebration is to shine a light on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and maker culture. This all ages event will take place from 10:30am to 12:30pm in the Peter P. Childs Meeting Room. Watch a demonstration and participate in Stop Motion Animation. If electronics is more to your liking, give Little Bits a try. We’ll be making jewelry, buttons, magnets, chip clips, playing games, and more. Although we won’t be putting a dent in the Guinness record for the largest marble run (for you fellow nerds, it’s 9,379 feet, 7 inches!), guests, kids and hosts will work together to construct a ginormous structure of roll-ability. There is no charge to participate in Makers Day events.

New Jersey Makers Day began in 2015 to enhance community engagement and develop connections among New Jersey residents by collaborating with multi-type libraries, museums, small businesses and others to promote and explore new opportunities for entrepreneurship, innovation and hands-on learning experiences. In 2016, New Jersey Makers Day was expanded to be a two-day event, which allowed sites not able to host events during the weekend (like schools, colleges and universities, manufacturers, local businesses, etc.) to still be able to provide programs, demonstrations and other events for their communities.
