Dear fellow Hanoverians:
Playful engineers at John Curtis Library
Thursday, February 20, 10:30 a.m.—12:30 p.m.
In this hands-on, STEM-focused workshop, children design, build, test, and
play with Rube Goldberg “machines”, plus domino constructions, exploding
popsicle-stick snakes, and other awesome engineering explorations.
Teaching artist and engineering enthusiast Jay Mankita brings lots of
materials to work with, including dominoes, wood blocks, string, chain,
pulleys, elastics, tinker toys, K’nex, Lego, tracks, ping-pong balls,
clamps, connectors, bases, dowels, and magnets.
Children will have a chance to create various fun chain reactions,
connecting focused play with serious science. Participants learn through
demonstration and play, exploring basic force and motion physics, as they
build with common toys and other ordinary materials.
The program is best for children in kindergarten and up. Younger children
may participate if closely supervised by a caregiver.
The program is funded by the Friends of the Library.
