“Makers” meet the science fair

Students who have been influenced by the Makers Movement during the past several years will find creating science fair projects relatively easy.

Science fair season has been the traditional low point of the school year for non-creative parents and kids.

But students who have mixed art with science, technology, engineer, math assignments will find it easier to sew an LED light into fabric or create a new form of solar-powered toy.

Even four-year olds are starting to play with gadgets and gizmos in preschool. These kids who want “real” might sound a death knell for the plastic toys of previous generations.
