Artful Mechanisms

Artful Mechanisms In-Person

Join us for an afternoon of creating, playing and engineering with Playful Engineers!  Jay Mankita, Founder of Playful Engineers, brings his knowledge, and a whole bunch of creative energy, to help kids build and design "artful mechanisms", creative tools that tell stories and do other useful things (maybe you need a grabber for those hard to reach places)!  All supplies are provided by Jay.

This program is intended for young people ages 7-12.

Space is limited, so please register each young person who plans to participate below. 

Funding for this program was supplied by Connecticut Humanities!
