Dear School Maker Community,
Bliss Carman Middle School is hosting the very first School Maker Faire in Fredericton, N.B. on
May 9th, 2017. As you may already know, Maker Faire is an event created by Make Media that has
grown in international interest, celebrating innovation, creativity and resourcefulness (for more
information please visit this link http://makerfaire.com/makerfairehistory/).

Cancer Society. In addition to planning the event, the grade seven organizing class will be offering
workshops (including Learn to Solder, The Art of 3D Design & Robotic Coding) as well as selling
original products that they have made. Our goal is to educate the local community about Maker
Education and the innovative practices of students, thereby facilitating further growth in this
