Intermediate School 2nd Annual Maker Fair

by Cathie Gable

Woodland Hills Intermediate School hosted its second annual Maker Faire, titled "Remake Learning: Parents Explore Making" on Thursday, May 25, 2017.   

Approximately 100 members of the community came out to "explore." Participants made marble paper, marble mazes, and kinetic sand, and  got to take a ride on a student-made hoverboard!  In addition to these classroom-inspired activities, the Consortium for Public Education and the Prime Time Program at WH Junior-Senior High School sponsored workshops on creative art expression. The Saturday Light Brigade Radio Show and Assemble helped families make "light-up" badges.  The Tech Gyrlz and STEM Stars demonstrated the use of air pressure in "launching" rockets.  

As families munched on pizza, fruit and vegetables, they were treated to a demonstration of the WHI Ballroom Dancing ensemble that has been performing around the greater Pittsburgh area over the past two months.

Take a look at the video to see all the fun!
