Makers Day: Go-Karting
Come make awesome stuff! Using lessons in design, art, engineering, and woodworking taught by reDiscover Center facilitators, students will use recycled materials and their imagination to create small- and large-scale carts built to race! Students become proficient with handsaws, drills, and other hand tools during this 10-week session. This hands-on, minds-on workshop is fun and creative!
