On Sunday, October 2, 2016, students from John F. Kennedy Middle School accompanied by Mr. Scarola and Mr. Choi, attended the 7th Annual MakerFaire NYC held at the New York Hall of Science.  A MakerFaire is "an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, do-it-yourselfers, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and exhibitors". At MakerFaire NYC, the students got to see various exhibits, ask questions to the exhibitors, engage in hands-on activities, and watch several drone races. In addition, the students got to meet with the Regal Eagles, Bethpage High School's very own Robotics Team, who were exhibitors themselves with their robot in attendance. Under the guidance of the Regal Eagles, John F. Kennedy students were able to control their robot! To end the day, the students met with Mr. Zabell who summarized the various activities that the students took part in from throughout the day!
