Let’s try making our own board games!   On day 1, we’ll play several different types of games and think about what makes them fun.  Next we’ll look at the mechanics of board games: movement, winning conditions, and obstacles. Then, we’ll start brainstorming our own games. Days 2 and 3 will be creation and testing and Day 4, we’ll have a play day.  We’ll take turns playing each other’s games and having fun!

Upcoming Build a Kaleidoscope

  •  07/27/2024
     11:00 am CDT - 11:50 am CDT

First, we’ll take some time to explore mirrors and reflections.  Can you adjust the mirrors so it looks like your eyes disappear? So that you have four eyes?  Adjust the angle of the mirrors and watch the number of reflections multiply.  What happens to the reflection when a mirrors surface is curved.    Parents, this is a time to explore together with you kids.

Then, we’ll build a kaleidoscope to take home.  Ages 4+ can build this project with adult help.  Ages 8+ can be fairly independent with this build.  Adults are welcome to stay or drop off for ages 8+.
