Markers Day

24-March-2019
  On Saturday-23-March the Bogota Public Library held their annual Makers Day Event.   This is an annual event that includes other Libraries  and Museums within the State of New Jersey. Makers Day is designed to be a statewide event that celebrates, promotes, and in many cases may introduce maker culture, as well as the values associated with making, tinkering and STEM-based learning.  This years Makers Day focused on the exploration of Space and the Universe. There were seven stations set-up on the ground floor for the Students to explore and learn.  When a station was completed the participates would earn a sticker to fill their rocket ship. When the ship was filled the Students could then turn it in for a reward.  They Makers could choose from building a Straw Rocket Ship, and a Moon Lander. Creating a Galaxy in a jar, a Marshmallow Constellation, and a Shooting Star  Spinning. They could also learn about  what type of  crater different size meteors will create and some space coding.  Students traveled from one station to another and received  instruction form Library Staff, or High Student volunteers.  Some Makers  had help and encouragement from their Parents. While others just showed off their skills to the Adults.
