NJ Makers Day
All ages welcome.
The maker movement in the United States isn’t just a hobby; it’s having a significant impact on school curriculum development and growing local economies. To celebrate making and maker culture, residents throughout New Jersey will come together on Saturday, March 19 in libraries, schools, museums, homes, and other community locations. For a second year, Montclair Public Library and its neighbor HackNCraftNJ are teaming up to provide maker activities in their respective facilities.
