Mess Hall: Wreck It!

Mess Hall: Wreck It!

Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

This is not your teacher's study hall! Drop by for an afternoon of messing around and making stuff. We'll have art projects, video games and board games, and robots to build, as well as space for you to unwind. Every week will be a new experience. 
This week, be prepared to break things: things with wires and buttons, things with circuits and lights, and things that you never don't see inside. We'll provide the tools; you'll take broken and obsolete pieces of technology apart.
