Peconic Community School Meets the Makers

The Peconic Community School held their second annual Maker’s Fair, a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, on March 25.

Weaving through the Aquebogue school building from surprise to surprise, through environments of ideas and play, each individual booth was run by somebody who came there because they loved what they did.

It wasn’t a making money fair. It was clay and cardboard and rocks and black lights and bubbles and electricity and wood and blocks and nobody was left out.

If there was something you could get excited about, it was there for you to find.

We couldn’t tell who was having more fun —the kids or the grown-ups.

Bravo to the Peconic Community School. They showed us what it was all about.
