Grades 2-5

An arcade game can be many kinds of entertainment machine, ranging from a ball toss to a pin-ball machine and beyond. These days many of us have electronic video consoles at home, but can't we design our own games that don't need electricity to function? In this workshop, we'll use wood, cardboard, collage and found materials to build arcade games that make use of forces such as magnetism, gravity, or human energy to function.

Workshop Dates: 12/2, 12/9, 12/16, 1/6, 1/13, 1/20, and 1/27. No workshops 12/23 or 12/30 for Winter Break!
