Makers Day 2018 at the NJ State Library on Friday, March 9, featured a number of interesting stations. Participants got to make a microwave brownie in a cup, different buttons, a stress ball, and origami book mark, swap their face with someone famous, play with Legos and experience virtual reality.

New Jersey Makers Day is a statewide celebration of making and maker culture that takes place every March in the Garden State. The primary goal is to enhance community engagement and facilitate connections among New Jersey residents by exploring new and interesting opportunities for community-wide education, entrepreneurship and hands-on learning experiences.
