The maker movement in the United States isn’t just a hobby; it’s having a significant impact on school curriculum development and growing local economies. To celebrate making and maker culture, residents throughout New Jersey will come together on Saturday, March 21, 2015 in libraries, schools, museums, homes, and other community locations.

NJ Makers Day is designed to be a statewide single-day event that celebrates making culture, as well as the values associated with creativity, making, and tinkering.

Maker spaces across the state are having a significant impact on education and job skills development by providing access to people, information, resources, and tools that facilitate making to a wide variety of skill levels. Popular equipment in these spaces include 3D printers, single board microcontrollers like Arduino and Raspberry Pi, robotics, digital media production, computer programming, textiles, crafts, and more.

Art Librarian Megan Lotts is committed to finding ways to help people to learn new skills and to work collaboratively on exciting hands-on projects. The Rutgers University Art Library is proud to be a participating site for the first ever New Jersey Makers Day on March 21, 2015! Community members of all ages are invited to join us at the Art Library for Lego® Play and coloring activities.
