nj makers dayMIDDLETOWN, NJ – The Middletown Township Public Library is proud to be a participating site for New Jersey Makers Day on March 19th, 2016! NJ Makers Day is a statewide event that promotes maker culture and STEAM-based learning and growing local economies. Community members of all ages are invited to join us for an exciting day filled with activities focusing on maker culture. As always, all programs are free at the library.

This year’s lineup includes LEGO’s by Ignite Academy, 3-D Printing, NJ Master Gardeners, Science experiments with both Allied Health Academy and Brookdale Community College Chemistry Club, Monmouth County Parks ceramic arts demonstration, 4H SET Club Waste Wise Challenge, nesting boxes with Wild Birds Unlimited, Ozobots, MCVSD woodworking demo and much more! 

“We are delighted to be able to bring this type of programming to the Middletown community with the help of local sponsors, students, and volunteers,” said Ellie Strbo, Youth Services Manager. “It affords us the opportunity to show that STEAM can be fun and to open young minds to the possibility of career paths (or hobbies) within these fields.” Stop by the Middletown Library on Saturday, March 19th from 11am-3pm to engage your mind and spark your imagination.
