NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- MakerJam is a brand-new event, created by New Milford High School students Sarah Almeda, Angie Bellanich and Patrick Westervelt. The event theme will be revealed on Monday, June 6, and students will have the opportunity to create a piece of art during the in-school field trip on Tuesday, June 7.

Organizers note,

This art is not restricted to traditional art, though. Want to create a painting, piece of music, or story? Go ahead. Want to create a science project, mosaic, or meme? Go ahead. Want to create a philosophical video, a bedazzled jar of pickles, candy sculpture or video game? Go ahead. The sky's the limit, and it all begins with when you sign up for MakerJam.

The event is for both middle- and high-schoolers. Find the respective permission slips here and here.

For more information about the 2016 MakerJam, watch the video embedded above or check out the event's website or Twitter feed.
