Maker Mania Night at Dr. John Long Middle School

Who: Dr. John Long Middle School students, parents, and local community workforce

What: Maker Mania Night

When: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., Monday, December 17

Where: Dr. John Long Middle School, 2025 Mansfield Boulevard, Wesley Chapel, FL 33543

Why: For the first time ever, Dr. John Long Middle School is hosting an open house-style Maker Mania Night to showcase student-made Makerprojects. This event will give students an opportunity to show off the work they’ve done to parents, fellow students, and the community.

How: Students will have informational displays set up at booths throughout the space. Attendees can visit each booth to learn more about the work that the students have done on their projects. Each student has worked though the engineering cycle to solve problems related to their purpose in a subject unfamiliar to them previously.

The projects are related to Maker Faire, an international celebration of invention, creativity, and curiosity, showcasing the very best of the global Maker Movement—where people of all ages and backgrounds gather to learn, share, play, and make. These types of events have been held in Dubai, Paris, Bangkok, and locales all over the world.
