Maker Faire

The Monarch School participates in Houston Mini-Maker Faire 

          

The Monarch School participated in the Houston Mini-Maker Faire at the Stafford Centre on Saturday, November 1.

Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects.

At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture. 

The Monarch School hosted the Air Rocket Launch & Building booth. Participants built paper rockets that could be propelled through the air by a blast of air from the The Monarch School's Air Rocket Launch pad. Participants built paper rockets and cardboard creatures, created a Rube Goldberg machine and saw display artifacts from the STEAMworks, Science, Art and Get Out Programs.  Monarch Butterfly Progam students Josh and John volunteered to help participants at The Monarch School's Air Rocket Launch & Building booth.
