Stop motion animation videos, Popsicle stick “bombs,” t-shirts that light up, drones, rockets and robots.

All of this and more will be made by students in grades K-12, with parents and community members during Maker Madness from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 30, in the Columbia High School cafeteria.

The Achieve Foundation invites everyone to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) and expand horizons by making things with their hands.

Maker Madness combines engineering with art, science with crafts, and technology with music, and encourages people to interact directly with the physical world. Here’s a small sampling of our stations to pique your curiosity:

Balloon Hovercrafts – Race your own simple hovercrafts, made from 4 components, including recycled CDs and balloons.

Printmaking from Nature – Make beautiful prints from nature using edibles like shallots, melons, and limes.

Hour of Code – Anyone can learn to program, using exercises and games from the popular, international HourOfCode site.
