As some of you know, we are going to be having a Makerfest soon in downtown Sugar Hill.

What you need to do is come up with a STEM related activity (you are in the STEM program after all) that you could host at a booth in the city park.

Here are some parameters:

  • Not extremely messy, and NO GLITTER. It gets everywhere.

  • Your target demographic is 8- 13 years old

  • As we said before, must be STEM related

  • Your activity must be created from readily available products from Publix , one of our sponsors

  • You must have typed out, clear instructions on how to make/play you activity, and your materials. Remember, you are dealing with Elementary and Middle School students, every things needs to be spelled out clearly and properly.

  • And finally, your raw materials must not cost more than $2.00…...let me spell it out, NO MORE THAN TWO DOLLARS.

Use your Engineering Process…… explore, design, create, test, refine. Have others do your activity, and be receptive & responsive to feedback.

The best projects will be considered for actual use in the Sugar Hill Publix store and at the Maker Fest!!

You will present your activity/game to our liaison with Publix on MONDAY, Feb.13th. Be Prepared!!!!
