The Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire has something for visitors of all ages. Our latest addition to the fairs activities is a interactive Bloxes area for the five and under crowd.
Never heard of bloxes? The best way to describe them is large cardboard Legos. Each piece starts out as a flat sheet of reinforced cardboard. Each sheet is then folded into a six sided notched cube. Once assembled, Bloxes are strong, durable and can be used to make almost anything! From furniture to forts the possibilities are endless.
This activity is being conceptualize by a group middle school students from Poughkeepsie Day school. The students plan to focus on design, math, art and engineering. Their goal is to teach the younger kids through the use of these Bloxes.
Even though this activity is directed towards the little ones, Bloxes are fun for kids of all ages! Want to get some hands on experience with the Bloxes, head over to our attend page. Tickets are on sale now.
