This past Sunday I went to the East Bay Mini Maker Faire at Studio One Art Center, where I saw kids making new clothes out of of old clothes, rockets out of toilet paper rolls, giant milk crate structures (while strapped into a harness in a crane), terrariums, butter, and more.
So who is primed and ready to make a "90 Second Newbery" video? This online contest and festival is starting up its third year. Upload your video and share it (check out the instructions here) before December 10, to be considered in this year's contest. Screenings of the winners will take place around the country.
My current favorite from past years?: From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankeweiler...in Legos.
