Maker Monday

Monday September 27 @6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Kids in grades 3 and up are invited to join us in the Whitehall Community Room at 6:30 for a Maker Monday! A makerspace is a place where you can make things, and kids will be able to keep what they make. It’s a place for hands-on learning with all the tools for creativity. Every month will have a different theme and different tools for the kids to use. Examples include robotics, 3D pens, circuits, and more! Projects will be hands-on, open-ended and encourage inventiveness and problem-solving skills.

This month we will exlore robotics and kids will make their own ScribbleBot!
