On behalf of Voyagers’ Community School, we would like to thank you for making our first Maker EXPO a resounding success. Over 350 community members, of all ages, were present to enjoy the exhibits and opportunities to interact with a variety of hands-on projects showcasing concepts in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
Given the excitement and interest expressed in the Maker EXPO, we have decided to offer a Living Green Expo on June 3, 2017. We look forward to opening our doors and our outdoor spaces to more exhibitors, presenters, and visitors. We hope we can count on your participation. Thank you for your generosity, we consider you a valuable part of our Voyagers’ family.
