Do your kids like to design, construct, tinker, create? Then Lanier High School is the place to go on Saturday, Jan. 30! From 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., children are invited to MakerSpace Mania — a free event for creative young minds. MakerSpace Mania will feature fair-style booths run by instructors to lead children in their activities. The booths will give students the opportunity to experiment with technology, create art with recycled materials and make take-away projects, such as puppets and jewelry. Each child will also receive a free book and can enjoy free snacks.

This event is hosted by Lanier High School, along with all of the schools that feed into it, with the goal of promoting literacy and inspiring children to become lifelong readers. Each child will receive a free book at the event, and a story time (featuring maker-themed stories) will take place in the last hour of the program.
