“Play, build, create” was the theme of Peconic Community School’s third annual Maker Fair on Saturday in Aquebogue. The annual family-friendly festival of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness was held in celebration of the global Maker Movement and offered creation stations, demonstrations by local makers, and its first local food truck rally.
Guests experienced workshops and demonstrations by local woodworkers, robotics teams, artists, chefs, scientists, inventors, puppeteers, and performers. Community members toured the school and its classrooms.
The fair served as a fundraiser for the independent school, but was also launched as a conduit for connecting with the community and to share creativity and project-based learning, two pillars of the school’s curriculum.
