Our own Ben Harris will be exhibiting his maker made STEM Science Kits at the World Maker Faire in New York later this month. Alamance Makers Guild members, Dan Porter, Kindle Cherry and me, Ilsa Spaan will be tagging along (and Ben’s nephew Brian) to help him man the booth at the two day event that is expected to attract over 75,000 people.
Ben’s company, Harris-Educational makes Reinventing Science Kits, which are used in classrooms and homes across the US. He will soon begin a Kick Starter to raise funds that will allow him to expand the Reinventing Science Kit line to give students more opportunities to explore and learn science.
Current STEM Reinventing Science Kits include:
Reinventing Edison: Build Your Own
A fun science kit designed to excite and engage experimenters of all ages as they recreate the experiments that lead to the development of the first real light bulb.
Bennett Harris founded Harris Educational, the Alamance Makers Guild, and the Burlington Mini Maker Faire. and was one of 16 ”Honored Maker Attendees” at the first White House Maker Faire.
