Playful Engineers, Gr. K-4Saturday February 23, 2019
2:30 PM until 4:30 PM
Teaching artist Jay Mankita offers a family program that is educational and fun! In his Chain Reactions & Creative Contraptions workshop, participants will have a chance to design, build, test, and play with Rube Goldberg “Machines”, and other chain reactions. There'll be a number of activities to choose from, and there will be plenty of opportunities for making connections between goofy play, and serious science.Participants will have an opportunity to work with Jay, a multi-faceted teaching/performing artist and engineering enthusiast, and learn through demonstration and play, exploring the basic materials and techniques of domino walls and rallies, exploding popsicle stick snakes, ping pong ball direction changers, flying fantasticators, miniziplines, and whiffle-whackers!
No registration required. For kids in grades K-4 and their interested adults. Sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
