Maker Stations

There will be an array of interactive Maker stations for participants to use their creativity and make. Some stations will be Make & Take stations where participants can take home what they create. We will have a couple of community art projects in our Make Together section. At our Try & Make, participants can learn a new skill or explore a new concept.

We at Hudson Montessori School take pride in being a Maker School. Maria Montessori said “The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence” and we agree !
