Is your kiddo always building, tinkering or creating? Consider their STEAM wishes granted. On March 24-25, your crew can head to various libraries, schools, museums and more around the state to participate in various interactive demos and activities. Last year, Makers Day brought in more than 40,000 people at 230+ sites around NJ, so this year is bound to be just as big...if not bigger!

Here's what some NJ libraries are doing this weekend to celebrate. 

Head to any of 10 library branches in Somerset County to learn how to publish an e-book, drop by the Family Makers Fair, create your own LED pop-up cards and engage in a robotics workshop.

The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts in Morris County’s Madison is celebrating, too, hosting a range of hands-on activities for kids of all ages. She’ll be able to make a wooden tool kit, learn about basic machines and tour the museum for a history of trade and tech.

Make the trip to Hackettstown’s Warren County Library, Johnson Public Library in Hackensack or Old Bridge Public Library to build LEGO structures, play with a 3D printer, make food creations and more.

Refer to the New Jersey Family calendar or your local library’s website for more Makers Day fun, or just head straight to the NJ Makers Day website.
