Cozad presents Maker Fair 2023
NORTH PATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) — Cozad High School kicked off the 2023 Maker Fair on Tuesday morning. It was the first of two days of the fair, allowing students to take a break from traditional lectures and get a more hands-on introduction to careers they may wish to pursue in the future. During the two days, students can choose from 70 different courses that may pique their interest. It has been nine years since Maker Fair was created and teacher Amanda Rossell is thrilled with how far it has come.
“Some students need a break from regular classes and tend to do more hobbies and interest-based courses, but we also have these types of activities for other students as a more professional interest,” Rossell said.
Some of the students said it’s an opportunity for them to experience new things.
“The person who did that was actually one of our classmates who’s really good at that kind of thing, and he told us a lot of things we shouldn’t have used the recipe for, and he was really good at explaining so something I’ve never done before and it was very interesting,” Cozad Senior Mallory Applegate told the Maker Fair.
Students had the chance to dabble in courses they were previously interested in and also had the chance to be exposed to different things, and Rossell said, “That’s the real end goal here.”
