Vineland, NJ -- The maker movement in the United States has been gaining significant speed and popularity, especially among entrepreneurs, creative professionals and young people, making a significant impact on school curriculum development and local economies growth. To celebrate the maker culture, Vineland Public Library is participating in the NJ Makers Day, Saturday, March 25.
NJ Makers Day is designed to be a statewide event that celebrates, promotes, and in many cases may introduce maker culture, as well as the values associated with making, tinkering and STEM-based learning. In 2016, NJ Makers Day drew over 40,000 individual attendees to more than 230 participating sites across all 21 counties in the state.
“We are ecstatic to be able to bring this type of programming to the library,” said Joshua Barreiro, Director of Make & Move Club. “We are committed to finding ways to help people to learn new skills and to work collaboratively on exciting hands-on projects.” Vineland Public Library is proud to be a participating site for New Jersey Makers Day on March 25, 2017! Children ages 5-12 are invited to join us for an exciting day filled with activities and fun.
