Teaching artist Jay Mankita offers a family program called “Playful Engineers” 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”. There will be a number of activities to choose from, and there will be plenty of opportunities for making connections between 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, and so much more. Registration is not required. This event is for children in grades K-4 and their interested adults.
The Milton Public Library will be the scene for engineering fun on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the Keys Community Room.
