SPECIAL EVENT: Toy Hacking! Monday, July 14th from 9-12 pm for grades 5 to adult. Toy hacking is a fun and playful way to learn how circuits work. By taking used electronic toys we carefully and safely take them apart to see how they work. Participants explore the simplicity and complexity of these toys and their unique circuits and are shown how to identify inputs, outputs and power. This grant funded program is brought to you by the Dept. of Libraries, Vermont Makers, the Vermont Public Library Foundation, UVM's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, and the funder, Vermont Community Foundation. Call 899-4962 to sign up!
