Jay Mankita’s Playful Engineers

Kids ages 8 and up are invited to join us in the Fehlow Meeting Room at 2:00 PM on Friday, July 12 when Jay Mankita will present a two hour workshop in which participants will have a chance to design, build, test, and play with Rube Goldberg “Machines” in the library (complicated contraptions that accomplish simple tasks.) Jay supplies dominos, popsicle sticks, rubber bands, string, ping pong balls, pulleys, buckets, tracks, ramps, etc…, as well as materials for domino walls, exploding popsicle stick snakes, catapults, mini-zip lines, flying fantasticators, lever-action direction changers, Lego Whiffle-Whackers, and Tinker Toy Carousels, for kids to work with and discover connections between goofy play, and serious science.
