This is a two part class occurring on 2/22 and 3/22 of 2018. Participants need to be able to attend both classes.

In February, we'll use the laser cutter to cut out our clocks and then we'll paint and decorate them as we please. Participants will actually attend either at 4:00pm, 4:30pm, 5:00pm or 5:30pm. We will send out an e-mail closer to the program date to determine which time works best for your family. Ages 9-18 only.

Then, in March, we'll add the electronic pieces so that we have functioning clocks. This will probably take ~45 minutes instead of the usual 90, so please plan accordingly.
