James Nesmith, the Administrative Manager of the Science Spectrum notes that this is a fantastic event tailored for kids who have either created a business or are thinking about starting one. “This was started by a local mom who's been in contact with a national group called Acton Children's Business Fair that puts these fairs on throughout the country. It is an opportunity for [kids] to be able to set up a vendor booth or table and be able to actually make sales to the general public. It is primarily for kids ages six to 17.”
