Everyone is invited to the third annual Bitterroot Maker Fair this Saturday, May 18.

The event runs from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the Bitterroot College Gym, 103 South Ninth St.in Hamilton. The event is free and open to the public. The fair gives kids in grades K-12 a chance to learn more manufacturing, biotechnology and trades.

Visitors can make and take home jigsaw puzzles, learn about electricity and conductivity with the popular Makey Makey circuit board and take silly photos using forced perspective photography. There will also be demonstrations of 3-D printing and laser engraving and other interesting activities.

So...a whole lot of education and fun rolled into one entertaining afternoon. Definitely something worth keeping in mind for the family on Saturday. If you have any questions you can contact Nick Wethington with the University of Montana spectrUM Discovery Area at 406-243-4828.
