Upcoming Events:

FALL BREAK – PAPER SHOP – October 9-11, 9 am – 3 pm

That’s right, folks, it’ll be fall break before you know it! Looking for a fun new experience? Join us in Earl’s Garage for a 3-day program where we’ll learn how to make recycled paper, from start to finish. Even if you’ve made recycled paper before, I bet you haven’t really done it from scratch!

 

We’ll start from the beginning by building the necessary frames (called a mould and deckle), so this workshop will include carpentry, artistry, and learning a sustainable skill. Students will get to take home the mould and deckle they make, so they’ll be able to make more paper on their own at home!

 

In-between paper crafting, students will also be introduced to Turtle Art, a simple but powerful software (based on the Logo programming language) that’s great for drawing.

 

We’ll also play some fun outdoor games (weather permitting). Students should bring a snack and lunch; no candy or soda, please. Closed-toe shoes are required. Ages 9 & up.

 

A $10 donation is requested to cover the cost of materials. Space is limited, so please sign up ASAP! Email chezlani@earlsgarage.org or call 885-6777 to learn more.

 

I hope to see you there!

Family Science Night – September 2018

The future engineers of Earl’s Garage tested out their balloon car designs… and found out it was a little harder than expected! Congratulations to the Baril family for building the only car of the evening that successfully made it across the table. A great time was had by all, even though we struggled!

Favorite overheard quote of the evening: “Your mom is learning physics right now!”

1st test run of a successful vehicle!

Discussing design issues

Hmm… what’s going on here?

Thanks to Helene Baril for the live chameleon centerpiece!

Working hard!
