This led me to think. What can I make? I know the answer to that. So then I thought, I wonder what our faculty can make? Could we create a PD day where we host a Maker Faire of our own and teach one another how to garden, sew, solder, woodwork and more?
Below are images and captions from the fair that I found inspiring.

The images below were taken at the Castilleja School's booth. Check out their Bourn Idea Lab for more information on how they made each of these projects.

The remaining pictures just made me think, "I bet I could do that, better take a picture to inspire myself."
