Are you curious about how things work?
Do you like to tinker with stuff, and take things apart?
If something breaks, do you want to fix it?
If you are 7 - 10 years old, come have fun experimenting with "stuff" in the Curious Kids Club at Timbuk Toys!
We will take things apart, build new things, and invent our own creations. We will experiment with flight, balance, sound and magic. We will explore magnification, gravity, electricity and more. The world is our laboratory, and our mission is to find out how things work! The critical ingredient is CURIOSITY!
The Curious Kids Club is a place to come and have fun, while learning through experimentation. We will have a strong focus on safety and cooperation. Every session will begin by reciting the Curious Kids Club Promise, to remind kids of these important values. (see below) They will learn how to tie a useful knot, and then dive into activities associated with the weekly theme. We’ll end with a team challenge, where club members can apply what they figured out while experimenting. Lab coats, safety glasses, tools and materials will be provided.
If this sounds like fun, the Curious Kids Club is for you!
