Idea to Invention: Be a Maker!

Thursday, November 30, 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.

Mondays (except the 2nd Monday)

Welcome to the World of Dowsing

Sunday November 5, 2017
2:00 PM until 3:30 PM

Perhaps dowsing brings to mind a picture of an old New England farmer, walking across his land, holding a forked tree branch, searching for water. Perhaps it was your grandfather. Dowsing for water is what most people think of, but the world of dowsing is expansive.

Pamela Pike, a New Hampshire dowser, will be here to explore this fascinating modality of seeking answers to questions by means of various tools. Pendulums,L-rods, Bobbers, Y-sticks and Aurometers. All will be available to experience a fun-filled, hands-on, educational afternoon.

Learn how we can use these tools to make our lives healthier, easier or wiser. You’ll have the opportunity to make a “dowsing pendulum” to take home.

Come with questions, a sense of adventure and discovery. You never know what you’ll find.

Fighting Fatigue

Wednesday November 1, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM

Come join Dr. Deborah Bonfanti, owner/doctor at Hope ND in Milford, NH for an informative, thought-provoking presentation on low-energy/fatigue.

She will delve into different types and causes of fatigue and why having low-energy is not always linked to the number of hours of sleep one is getting each night. Not only will she introduce members of the audience to these alternative causes, but she will explore with her audience how to test for and/or begin addressing/correcting these culprits in energy-theft. “There are different types of fatigue, and identifying when one’s energy dips and rises are essential keys in identifying the underlying factors snagging one’s energy. If someone wakes up with energy, and it drops after lunch, that is very different from someone who wakes feeling tired but then has high energy at night. The cause is completely different, and so the treatment will need to be different, as well.” – Deborah Bonfanti, ND
