At Bi-Cultural Day School: Innovation Unlimited

Innovation and ingenuity were on display under at Bi-Cultural Day School on May 18, as the Stamford school hosted its first-ever MakerFaire – an ode to student creativity, showcasing 60+ inventions by students in grades K through 8 – e.g., a multi-lingual “talking” globe and an “allergy alert” vending machine that enlarges the ingredients on food packages. Also on hand were several exhibitors – including The Discovery Museum, LEGO Robotics, Rippowam Labs, and others. Calling the MakerFaire “an amazing and unforgettable day,” 3rd-grade teacher Beth Fritz, who organized the event with middle school teacher Adrienne Robinson, promised “an even bigger event next year!”
