Cedar Point has made available 250 free tickets for admission to the Innovation Faire and the park. These tickets are available on a first come first serve basis to Ohio students who participate in one of the three Student Strands.

Activities Include:

  • Student Maker Showcase Strand: Do your students have an exceptional project to exhibit at the showcase? Whether you have something to exhibit or just exploring the showcase to see student projects, the Maker Showcase is a great way see how design, science and art is used to solve problems and inspire learning in students of all ages. See the Student Strands for information on how to submit your project.
  • Cedar Point Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (CPR3) Design Challenge Strand. Students will work in small teams of 4 to solve a real world-problem posed by the staff of Cedar Point.
