The NoVa Mini Maker Faire
The NoVa Mini Maker Faire is coming to South Lakes High School and Hughes Middle School on Sunday, March 16th.
What is it? The Mini Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It will bring together an amazing collection of Northern Virginia tech enthusiasts, engineers, woodworkers, artists, and craftspeople to show and tell us what they’re making. You will have many opportunities to learn to make things too!
Tickets are free to students until the end of February, but you must reserve them. Volunteer opportunities are also available.

Aaron and Ruma were our Gold Key winners for 2014, and Samuel was a Certificate of Merit winner. Congratulations to all our talented students!
