Real Tools Workshop: Build a House (And Light it Up!)
Nov 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Real Tools Workshop: Build a House (And Light it Up!)

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.

This workshop gives children the opportunity to invent, build, and learn basic circuitry. 

Real Tools workshops are $10 per child. PlayHouse Everywhere members receive one free workshop per month per child. Materials are included. Registration is required.

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.
