Join your daughter for an engaging, hands-on Little Makers Design Challenge. Each activity, led by Peck’s expert faculty, is inspired by a popular children’s book and pairs parents with their children in the fun task of imagining, designing, and building a “real-world” solution for a fictional character.

In Ruth Spiro’s Made by Maxine, Maxine loves to tinker and invent! She perseveres to create solutions to problems out of recycled odds and ends. Maxine becomes especially determined when designing an apparatus that will allow her pet goldfish to be able to march in the school's pet parade. Come design a fun, functional, fabulous solution for other pets to join in on the parade!

This event is intended for girls ages 4-6 with a parent/guardian "co-creator” and is perfect for families interested in exploring the possibility of a Peck education for their child. Early registration is recommended due to physical distancing capacity limits. 

This challenge, led by our Kindergarten faculty and our Technology, Innovation and Design Integrator, will be held in our Kindergarten building. Physical distancing of three feet will be maintained at all times and masks will be required.
