Jersey Shore Makerfest
Sat, October 14, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
Makerfest is organized by Toms River Regional Schools and is held in their 3500-seat Pine Belt Arena adjacent to Toms River High School North. At the heart of the Arena is a 3000-square foot makerspace, where creative minds of all ages can playwork with a variety of tools and materials. Around this central area, over 75 “booths” organized by students, educators, and community members who consider themselves makers offer hands-on, interactive experiences that reflect the mission of their school or organization. You can hear an inspirational EdTalk every 20-30 minutes, or take a workshop in one of our LearningSpaces. Participants join us from around the tri-state area, from cooks to floral designers, from hobbyists to professionals, from fruit computer companies to Rutgers University professors to public school students and teachers. Model trains and 3D printers mix with insects, lasers, and clothes made of paper. You can learn to control a robot in our epic Robonasium (before they control us!), find out how to do kitchen science, spin with wool, or fly a drone. At Makerfest, experiencing is believing!
