Clarkston High School was closed last Saturday, but it didn’t stop hundreds of girls from filling the cafeteria to continue their learning during the weekend.

Smiles filled inside and outside the school as girls in Kindergarten through seventh grade experienced activities in engineering, math and science at the third annual Maker Girl Mania, April 22.
The girls were hands-on at the various booths including MakerSpace sponsored by Clarkston Independence District Library, Clarkston’s Team RUSH Robotics team, Brick It Up, Foundry in a Box and more.
Maker Girl had three sessions this year and organizers Laura Kalinowski and Lori Banaszak excitedly shared interest continues to grow every year.
