Maker Faire Detroit Hosts 300 Kids from Summer in the City

The Summer in the City kids play life-size Mousetrap at Maker Faire Detroit

As part of the Summer in the City program, kids from the Detroit area are spending their time working in community gardens, painting murals, and going on cool field trips, like today’s visit to The Henry Ford and Maker Faire Detroit! Kids from the Detroit Public School System, Latino Mission Society, Laser: Adventures in Learning program, and the Del Rey Community House were at the Faire today, as we gear up for the Maker Faire Detriot weekend.

More info can be found at: and And Maker Faire Detroit.

We hope you’re going to be at the Faire or that you’ll be following the action here on MAKE.
