The Peconic Community School will present its third annual Maker Fair & Food Truck Rally on Saturday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school at 269 Main Road, Aquebogue.

The fair will include interactive workshops, along with hands-on crafts and demos, drones, a photo booth, performances and food trucks. There’s a suggested donation of $10 per family and all proceeds benefit Peconic Community School.

 Local “Makers” will present workshops and demos at this family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness in celebration of the Maker movement. This community and family event will feature everything from robotics and legos to coding and felting, potion making and cardboard building.

Described as part science fair, part county fair, the Maker Fair is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, engineers, science clubs, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors.

Children can enjoy hands-on projects and demonstrations, and adults can learn more about the Peconic Community School and the Maker movement. A fishbowl auction will offer unique prizes and a special door prize will be awarded to one lucky attendee.

Food trucks in attendance will be Noah’s on the Go, Tres Hermanos, 2 Greeks to Go, and Chiddy’s Cheesesteaks.
