Teens & Tweens MAKE@EA: Laser Cut Clocks

Where: East Library at Make @ East

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.

Comments

please put all the dates under one post, and list what you are doing during each event with its separate date. it is confusing looking at all the dates as separate events instead of one event with all the dates.

Hi there. I'm a little unclear on what you have in mind, but this is a feed from our calendar software, so unfortunately there's isn't much room for customization. However, you can click on the "click here for calendar view" link at the top of the feed and go directly to the calendar where you can filter the search to fit your needs.

How do we find out about the events from Sept. 22 to Sept. 30? Like the Wired Weekend.

Hi there. Click on "click here for calendar view" at the top of the page to see more entries. We limit the list to 25, otherwise it just gets too long.
