Rube Goldberg Inventing Weekend Workshop

Got an inventor in the family, an engineer, a thoughtful inspired kid?  This workshop is for her/him and you.  Join us as we use a variety of materials to create a machine that performs a most simple task.  We will learn about Rube Goldberg, an American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor.  Then get out a whole bunch of stuff, fire up the low fire glue guns, find the marbles, wood, dominoes, and duct tape to create a one-of-a-kind invention.  Ages 5-92 years $40 per machine Families can work on one together but I bet your little inventor will want to make their own.
