We're marking New Jersey Makers Day,  a statewide celebration of making and maker culture, with events and activities including  a wacky racers derby, a chance to “meet the robots” with local robotics teams, a special story time and lots of fun items to make and take. Schedule of Events: 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Maker Day Storytime and Activity with Author Katie Howes (Story Room) How many things can you make in a day? A tower, a friend, a change? Rhyme, repetition, and a few seemingly straightforward questions engage young readers in a discussion about the many things we make — and the ways we can make a difference in the world. Children's author Katey Howes reads from her new book "Be a Maker" with simple maker activity to follow. For ages 3-6. 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Nerdy Derby and Meet the Robots (Community Room) 2-3:30 p.m. - Make-and-Take activities in the CoLab Space and STEAM Studio Pennington Quiltworks offers sewing craft in the STEAM Studio.
