SEE THE ORDINARY, IMAGINE THE EXTRAORDINARY!

DESTROY AND CONSTRUCT

Using screwdrivers, pliers and other tools, kids destroy discarded printers, blenders and other common electronics to get inside and see how they work. Then, using the components along with recyclables and other found materials, kids will construct new inventions or environments in the classroom. Kids learn about the inner workings of electronics (and that free art supplies are everywhere) while developing skills of innovation and invention.

Materials:

Ardunio

Old printers

Old electronics

Old record players

Screwdrivers

TOY MAKING
(K-2)

Take apart old electronic toys, learn how they work and create new robotic inventions with our Master Builder!

BUILDING SPACES WITH EVERYDAY OBJECTS
(GRADES 3-5)

Each week we examine a common object such a lamp or cash register that has been discarded. We will take it apart, probe its inner workings and think about how it is used. Then, we will use its components and our imaginations to build a new environment within the classroom such as a room, a store or a part of a city. No prerequisite required.
