BIG Maker Day
BIG Maker Day is a celebration of makers – people who embrace the do-it-yourself spirit. Makers from our region will showcase their latest inventions as well as host hands-on demonstrations.
The inaugural BIG Maker Day was held on November 22, 2014. Ty Donaldson and Tim Cone led a catapult building workshop. Once the catapults were completed, teams competed in a cornhole catapult match. Brodie international had the winning team.
This year, BIG has partnered with the Center for Sustainability and the Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education to host a Pallet Challenge as part of GreenFest. In the spirit of sustainability and innovation individuals or teams will up-cycle used pallets into something new and creative.
Update: contestants displayed their creations at GreenFest 2015 on Saturday, October 3 at 10 a.m. on the Bulloch County Courthouse lawn. Congratulations to the winners of our first ever Pallet Challenge!
