Soap Box Summer Workshops
July 17, 2017 - August 25, 2017$450
SIGN UP FOR SOAP BOX SUMMER WORKSHOPS
Each year, the Soap Box Workshop encourages children to think outside the box. Children plan their inventions using sketches and calculations, bringing them to life with found and recycled objects as well as building materials. Over the course of the workshop, participants turn piles of seemingly useless trash into functional machines while learning about construction and design and, more importantly, having fun.
The workshop culminates in the annual South Slope Derby on 17th Street in South Slope, Brooklyn (the same street as Open Source Gallery) – participants, families, friends, and neighbors and invited to the race and all are encouraged to participate.
Our 10th Annual Soap Box Derby is August 26th!!
