We’ll experiment with circuit bending and reverse engineering while we reinvent the toys with materials on hand. Suggested age range with adult supervision/assistance: ages 6-9; working independently: ages 9-14. Please RSVP by email (email@example.com) phone (802-447-7121) or stop up in the children’s room to reserve your spot. This does not require you to come, but is encouraged!
