Learn What Makes Electronics Tick in NEW Electronics Discovery Workshop
Adventure Science Center introduces NEW Second Sunday Toy Hack program
Nashville, Tenn., March 30, 2017—From circuit boards to motors, there’s much to learn about what makes toys tick and Adventure Science Center is thrilled to announce a new program that does just that – Second Sunday Toy Hack.
Designed for ages 10 and up, this new, two-hour program gives participants the opportunity to dissect, manipulate, modify, hack, and harbor the electronics from old devices to create new inventions using whatever materials are in supply that day. Second Sunday Toy Hack aims to help provide a better understanding of electronics while participants use their imaginations to explore all sorts of technical possibilities.
“Encouraging inventive spirits and creative minds is vital to our mission at Adventure Science Center,” said Tiffany Farmer, Ph.D., ASC’s Director of Education and Community Engagement. “We saw the opportunity to bring Second Sunday Toy Hacks to life after seeing the overwhelmingly positive response to digi-dissections during the 2016 Winter Wonder Weekends. We’re excited to see what incredible projects our guests will come up with!”
Each session begins with a basic safety overview before moving into free exploration time to work on projects, and ends with giving participants the opportunity to share their “hack” with the group. At the end of the program, participants can either take their project with them or donate the parts for future hacks.
Tickets cost $4 per child for members and $7 per child for non-members, and are available at www.adventuresci.org/sundayhack.
Second Sunday Toy Hack tickets must be purchased in conjunction with membership or general admission tickets. Subject to change.
