Real Tools Workshop: Simple Machines

Real Tools workshops teach children how to make and how to invent. They show children how to solve problems — and it compels them to find the problems they want to solve.

Simple machines are the building blocks of every great invention. Join us at this workshop to learn about what simple machines do, and use them to create an invention of your own, or just have fun using them individually!

Real Tools workshops are $10 per child. PlayHouse Everywhere members receive one free workshop per month per child. Materials are included. Please note, adult help is often required, and we do ask that an adult be available / participating for the duration of the workshop. Registration is required; registration closes the Friday prior to the workshop at noon. 

Materials pick up: Friday afternoons from the Noble Center, 1125 W Lake Avenue

Tools may be picked up at the same time; they must be returned within 3 days of the workshop.
