Young Writers

Monday December 18, 2017
4:30 PM until 5:30 PM


Learning to write is one of the most important skills a child can learn!  Children have a natural enthusiasm for writing—as a way to express themselves. We will be working cooperatively on most projects with a lot of positive reinforcement.  The focus will be on creativity and not necessarily the mechanics of writing.

For grades 1 & 2.

No registration required.

Idea to Invention: Become a Maker

Thursday, December 21, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Join Jason Clark to explore 3D Printing, microcontroller programming (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), basic mechanical design, robotics and more.

Depending on interest, potential projects include creating an automatic plant watering unit, a mini robot arm, a line following robot, a ghost detector, or a metal detector. Learn to think like an inventor. For ages 10 and up.

Jason is a lifelong Milford resident with 20 years of experience in prototype design and fabrication.  His latest project is a device that can measure blood sugar without a blood sample!  His projects vary wildly…  from automated bird feeders to temperature measuring robots.  His favorite part of any day is helping someone to the “ah-ha” moment, the point when an idea clicks.
