Build A Better Rube Goldberg Machine Workshop - Build A Better World 2017! Media- Other,
Science,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Artist/Educator Jay Mankita guides and inspires kids to construct delightfully complicated contraptions that accomplish simple tasks. Jay supplies dominos, popsicle sticks, magnets, rubber bands, string, balls, marbles, etc…, set up includes Jay’s basic table and floor-based templates as well as some pre-constructed machines for kids to study and play with, with plenty of opportunities for making, and learning from, their own mistakes. Goofy fun, and real engineering, with a bit of Rube Goldberg history thrown into the mix.
$351- $500
Creative Cardboard Construction Workshop - Build A Better World 2017! Visual Arts- Crafts
Participants bring cardboard of all types, Jay supplies tape, ping-pong balls, kid-friendly tools, and plenty of challenges and inspiration for the kids (and families). Any age can participate. A great activity for the entire family, and finished products, or works-in-progress can be taken home. A house, a maze, an arcade game, a super-tunnel, a robot, a wild-animal, a mask, a table, a car - the possibilities are endless!
$351- $500
