We are pleased to offer some optional hands-on projects. As space is limited and pre-registration for the projects is required, be sure to reserve your spot soon! (See registration information below.) Each participant must be 8 years or older, or be accompanied by an adult. The projects start on time with instructions given at the beginning of the session.  Because of this and the fact that the projects take a certain amount of time to complete, your punctuality is necessary.
