Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) will hold its first ever “Maker Hoopla” in Modesto on Saturday, May 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Petersen Event Center, 720 12th St., Modesto. SCOE’s Maker Hoopla is a free, hands-on, family friendly event for elementary grade students to “learn through doing” in a social environment.

The Maker Hoopla will consist of three sessions in an effort to accommodate attendees. Each session will include activities encouraging students to create and explore.

“The goal of the event is to expose elementary grade students to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) learning and to expand student capacity, interest, and excitement for building, constructing, creating, designing, exploring, and inventing,” said event organizer Amy Zschaber.

Students are encouraged to pre-register for one of the following sessions:

Session 1: 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.,

Session 2: 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.,

Session 3: 1:15 p.m. to 3 p.m.,
