On Saturday, September 23, 2017, students from Grade 5 across the district's elementary schools and John F. Kennedy Middle School accompanied Mr. Zabell and Mr. Choi to the 8th Annual MakerFaire New York held at the New York Hall of Science.  A MakerFaire is "an all ages gathering of technology enthusiasts, artists, authors, crafters, do-it-yourselfers, educators, engineers, exhibitors, hobbyists, science clubs, students, and tinkerers."  At the MakerFaire, the students got to see various exhibits, ask questions to the exhibitors, and engage in hands-on activities.  We hope that the students left with seeing firsthand the many innovative creations that were at one point an idea and see how it has developed and they too, can be "makers"!
