Program Description

Event Description

If Jack built a school, there would be hover desks and pop-up textbooks, skydiving wind tunnels and a trampoline basketball court in the gym, a robo-chef to serve lunch in the cafeteria, field trips to Mars, and a whole lot more. Come join us to imagine YOUR perfect school! We'll be reading the book by Chris Van Dusen together, budgeting for the special features you'd like to include, then using the engineer design process to create one of those amenities using LEGOS!!!

Registration is by TABLE of family and friends (3 max per group). We will meet on the CHILDREN'S patio, not the adult.

Before or after the program, be sure to pick up your Summer Reading prizes at the table in the lobby or check out our back to school book display!
