February 17: Igloo Build
Join igloo-building expert Dr. Bert Yankielun and learn how to build an insulated, sturdy house, strong enough to support the weight of a polar bear, using nothing but water and a handsaw.
March 3: Take Apart Day
Join us and explore the “guts” of VCRs, toasters, cameras, and toys. You’ll find gears, cams, linkages, speakers, motors, and other components that work together to form complex mechanical and electrical machines.
March 31: Cardboard City Program
Transform the Montshire’s community room into a model city make of cardboard! Create amazing 3D structures out of the simplest tools and materials: cardboard, tape, and scissors. Design, obtain approval from the city planning board, then build your own free-standing structure that will join other buildings, parks, bridges, boats, and busses.
