Virtual MakerFest (Zoom or Facebook)

March 1 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:30 pm on Monday, repeating until April 26, 2021

| Main Library (Traverse City)

It’s MakerFest time of year! While we can’t meet in-person, we can share awesome STEAM and Making activities from partner organizations who exhibited at past MakerFests. Check in each Monday for a different organization and activity demo- or watch the recorded version on Facebook or YouTube after. When you complete the activity at home, you can either: 1) take a picture of it and send it to kids@tadl.org or 2) join us on the last Saturday of the month to show off on Zoom what you created (and also interact with these great organizations). You can win a drawing for a great STEAM Prize Pack from SEEDS for doing so.

The activities can be viewed live on Zoom or Facebook each Monday at 4:30 pm by clicking on the following links:
