We are hosting two great events at Aldrich this coming week in partnership with Vermont Makers.
Squishy Circuits: Tuesday, August 5th, 1pm
Build playful and colorful sculptures using conductive playdough. Using jumbo LEDs and batteries we’ll build parallel and series circuits and then use these patterns to build unique sculptures that light up! Circuitry has never been so fun and accessible to young kids (and adults!). Recommended for ages 3 and up.
Creative Creatures: Friday, August 8th, 1pm
Make amazing glowing creatures! Learn to light up colorful LEDs in basic circuits with solar energy. Our solar powered LEDs will then light up the creatures or containers we craft from repurposed plastic packaging. Inspiration will come from marine biology, the lifecycle of plastics and our own imaginations. The newly invented glowing creatures may even turn into characters for stories! Recommended for ages 11 and up.
All events are free and open to the public. Remember that we serve free lunch for anyone 18 and under in the children’s room at noon, so you can feed both body and brain next week! Please call 476-7550 and ask for Sarah or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
This program is sponsored by the Vermont Makers and made possibly by a Vermont Community Foundation Innovations and Collaborations Grant. For a full list of project partners, go to steam-e-zine.com.
