Chaney STEM students displayed their work at the Maker Faire at Barnes and Noble in Boardman

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – You could browse for more than just books at Barnes and Noble in Boardman. The store held a Mini Maker Faire on Saturday.

Students from Chaney’s STEM program participated by setting up displays with what they’ve learned.

A lot of attention was given to the robots built by students and 3D printers.

“In our engineering classes, they create items on the computer, then they can be printed,” the STEM coordinator, Pam Lubich, said. “It’s always exciting for kids to be able to design something and then see it and produce it.”

About 250 kids in 6th through 12th grade participate in the STEM Chaney Program.
