Calling all middle school geeks: the tinkering studio is open! Come and spend First Fridays exploring new skills and hanging out with friends.

Design, create, and build something cool—a robot that draws, an electronic blinky bug, tessellating designs. You’ll have a chance to use your imagination and sharpen your neurons. Sign-up for one session, or all of them, or just drop in. Each month will explore a different topic. Fridays 6:30–8 p.m. For Youth in Grades 6–9, pre-registration encouraged.
Pre-registration Fee: Members: $8, non-members: $10; Registration at the Door: members: $12; non-members: $15.
