New Jersey Makers Day & Local Makers Market Success
On Saturday, March 25, we celebrated our 3rd Annual New Jersey Makers Day along with 300 other participating sites! We offered a full day of events at Kennedy, which included vendors like Kaleidoscope Enrichment, IEEE, Blacksmith from ABC's Battlebots, Girl Scouts, and Safety Third Racing (we raced drones outside . . . up to 80 mph!), as well as activities like the button maker, coding, marble run and much more. And finally, we rounded out the celebration on Sunday, March 26, with a Local Makers Market featuring the handmade creations of Piscataway residents. This event supported local small businesses and provided free networking and selling opportunities for these local makers.
What better way to celebrate Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, than by participating in a community wide clean up day. Join with members of the Piscataway community to reduce litter, minimize waste, and beautify and improve the landscape to help to make our community a better place to live, work and play.
