BFPL – Try It Tuesdays (kids)

July 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Tuesday, July 11

Open to students entering 2nd-5th grade in the fall.
Register for Session 2:
3:00-4:30 pm
Bedford Free Public Library presents an in-person, multi-generational, hands-on event with Jay Mankita. Kids and families design, build, test, and play with Rube Goldberg ‘Machines’, complicated chain reactions accomplishing simple tasks.

Participants learn through demonstration, and through self-directed play, to make kinetic parts, exploring force and motion, scale, and cause and effect.

Jay brings his ‘Traveling Maker Space, including Tinker Toys, K’Nex, Hot Wheels tracks, ping pong balls, wooden blocks, toy cars, and action figures, plus rubber bands, string, tape, paper clips, and literally thousands of dominoes.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
