Explore the world of tinkering by creating designs using any materials you can find around your home!

This program is recommended for grades 1 – 5.  Siblings and caretakers are welcome; adult supervision is not necessary.  The cost for each week is $15 for a shared screen.  Join each week or drop in when you can!
