PSEG Support Increases Opportunity Across New Jersey for New Jersey Makers Day
New Jersey Makers Day continues to grow as it shifts back to its roots
The New Jersey Makers Day Executive Board is proud to announce the receipt of grant funding from the PSEG Foundation to support the 8th Annual New Jersey Makers Day. The statewide event is scheduled to take place at hundreds of locations throughout New Jersey on March 25-27, 2022.
Despite a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a transition from a system of outside support to providing direct content with NJMD Live! in 2021, site registration and participation is rebounding and we look forward to seeing where 2022 takes us. Participating locations included schools, colleges and universities, libraries, museums, and other educational organizations.
As a 501(c)3 New Jersey Non Profit, New Jersey Makers Day is able to offer grant opportunities to sites to provide additional resources encouraging making, designing and engineering. New Jersey Makers Day also focuses on providing impactful professional development and support for participating sites.
The $5,000 grant from the PSEG Foundation enables New Jersey Makers Day to increase opportunities for hands-on creating, crafting, programming, tinkering and a large variety of STEM and STEAM-based learning for all ages in communities statewide.
There are over 200 locations hosting NJMD events this March 2022 in almost all 21 counties across New Jersey. To locate a site near you, check “Events” at https://njmakersday.org.
We are thrilled to have PSEG’s continued support of our statewide initiative bringing STEM and maker experiences to communities across New Jersey. Their generous commitment demonstrates their unwavering support for STEM and maker-centered experiences, education and careers for all of New Jersey.
