Children and adults got a chance to make interesting “stuff” as the Grand Rapids Maker Faire took over the Grand Rapids Public Museum at the end of August.

More than 50 hands-on maker booths were staffed by local community members who make, design, and invent. One of the participating booths was from Career Readiness at Kent ISD. Each booth presented activities for everyone to try.
