Makers Day 2019 at the NJ State Library on Friday, March 22, featured a number of interesting stations, drawing a large crowd of state employees and library visitors. Participants got to make a seed bomb; a popsicle stick shelf; concoct their own spice rub; and decorate mini-donuts. There was a room for a virtual reality experience, and hands-on button making and origami.

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.
