On Thursday, May 16, the Humboldt County Office of Education will host the last Family Maker Night of the school year from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Sequoia Conference Center, located at 901 Myrtle Avenue in Eureka.
Family Maker Nights are part of the “Maker Movement” in education, which allows students to practice skills required of the 21st Century learner, such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, innovation, communication and collaboration. These events occur throughout the county on the third Thursday of each month.
This event includes support from the Pathmakers Program and Discovery Museum. There will be activities including paper beads, scribble basket bots, fairy houses, and more.
When given the opportunity, there is no limit to what a child can create and Humboldt County Office of Education wants to provide the opportunity to the children in our community to feel free to explore, tinker, and invent as an alternative way of learning.
Families and students throughout the community are encouraged to attend. There will be food for sale at the event.
