2019 Summer Program

How do we share tools, materials, time and ideas so that people working together accomplish more than the would working alone? (This applies to people working on their own projects or on team projects) That question has organized this week.

Focus on a classic challenge each day. (We have drawn inspiration from some of the most creative workshops in the world.) Start with common materials that you can master and assemble in an hour. And then find your own way with as much or a little support as you like.

The 3D Zoetrope & The theater of Light. The dance of mechanical animation choreographed by by flashing flight.

Erector Set Free Style ­– an homage to the works of Arthur Ganson. The practical engineering of the Erector Set meets the whimsy of the Artist Arthur Ganson.

The Marble Tree: in minor and major scales. Construct a marble tree with some advanced movements. Then join a team to construct an outsized, outside marble roller coaster.
