'Trenton Makers Day' Kicks Off on Friday at Roebling Wireworks in Trenton

 

Trenton, N.J. - Mayor Eric E. Jackson announced today that hundreds of
Trenton middle and high school students will get their hands on exciting
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) tools, like 3D printers and
a mobile recording studio, at the 2nd Annual Trenton Makers Day, which will
take place on Friday, July 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Roebling
Wireworks Building at 675 South Clinton Avenue in Trenton.

 

"Trenton manufacturers have told us that they want to hire more Trenton
residents and that they can only do so from a well-trained, well-educated
pool of applicants," said Mayor Jackson. "So, we partnered with various
stakeholders to organize the Manufacturing Working Group, made up of Trenton
City Hall, Trenton manufacturers, Trenton Public Schools, and area workforce
developers. Since then, the group has organized many different activities to
further this workforce-development goal, including the creation of Trenton
Makers Day."

 

The 2nd Annual Trenton Makers Day will feature hands-on activities for
middle and high school kids, such as how to build a flashlight, how to build
a bridge, drone technology, food-making demonstrations, robotics, website
coding and electronics. 

 

Trenton Makers Day is made possible by the City of Trenton and such
manufacturers, businesses and workforce-training organizations as Tektite,
Cimquest, Makers Bot, ETS and Seven13 Films. Other partners include: Trenton
Public Schools STEM Academy, Mercer County Community College, Shiloh
Community Development Corporation, Code for Trenton, the New Jersey
Institute of Technology, the New Jersey Manufacturers Extension Program, the
Trenton Free Public Library, Trenton 365, the Trenton Books at Home Program,
and the MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce.
