10:00am [10:00am] Branford: Mini-Maker Table
Join us every Friday and Saturday for a mini-maker project from our MakerLab! Every month we will feature a quick project or new piece of equipment to mess around with. The results may have you leaving with something to physically take home OR just the satisfaction that you were able to create a circuit, power on an Arduino or thread a sewing machine. The projects are easy, meant for all ages and 100% drop-in. It is just up to you to find out which floor we are featuring the project on and drop on by. Registration for this table is not required – just come ready to tinker, play and create!

[10:00am] Rocky Hill: Science Saturday - House of Cards
Join us to explore three common architectural shapes-a square, a triangle, and an arch and determine which is the strongest.

Drop-in throughout the day and ask for the materials at the Children's Desk and conduct this simple experiment that you can take home. Program is for families with children ages 3 and up. Registration not required. This engineering experiment is based on an episode of FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman on PBS.
