See Boogie Board at Maker Faire, Today at UDC

UDC is hosting Maker Faire this weekend, the "Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth... part science fair, part county fair and part something entirely new." The two-day, family-friendly event wraps up today from 11 AM to 7 PM and is FREE to attend. In addition to Maker Faire’s tasty food options and 3-D printing demonstrations, Boogie Board, creators of the Jot 8.5 and the SYNC 9.7 eWriters, will be hosting several activities for parents and kids at their booth, including:

• An interactive, life-sized, Boogie Board will be on the floor for anyone to create and play throughout the day

Boogie Board Sync 9.7

• An art contest will take place each day at 1 PM, where kids and parents can put their drawing skills to the test and win a swag bag

• Anyone can get personal hands-on time with Boogie Board eWriters that will be released later this year

• 10 product giveaways will be happening throughout the weekend so you can win your very own tote filled with a Boogie Board T-Shirt, Boogie Board Jot 4.5, and more.

Boogie Board’s Creative Director Hunter Morris will be on-hand to provide: product demos, answer any questions you may have, and speak to how Boogie Board is working to redefine the writing and learning experience for kids and adults alike in an effort to make learning fun again.
