Please join us at The Vineyard Haven Public Library on Friday July 19th from 3:30-5:00 pm for a very special visit from Jay Mankita of Playful Engineers. This free program is best for children ages 8 and up.
Jay Mankita has worked with kids and families for over 30 years. He is a longtime musical activist in ecology, nutrition, and education. He has a strong passion for engineering and making things move, and teaches how he learns - with patience, humor, and lots of room for mistakes! In this hands-on, STEM focused workshop, participants design, build, test, and play with Rube Goldberg "machines”, plus domino constructions, exploding popsicle-stick snakes, and other awesome engineering explorations.
This exciting and educational hands-on program is made possible by a gift to the Friends of the Library from the Anderson Foundation.
