Cardboard Art and Engineering, In-Person Weekly Classes

Come build amazing eco-friendly creations! At Cardboard Art and Engineering, reDiscover’s Facilitators teach children the skills they need to turn their wildest imaginings into real world items made from all sorts of accessible, upcycled materials. While practicing social distancing with their own personal workspace and dedicated set of tools, the group will have activities that encourage socialization and cooperation while building projects on their own to a group theme. Learn advanced cardboard construction techniques that can be brought home to generate hours of hands-on STEAM fun with just the content of your recycling bin.

At Home Tinkering Together

By popular demand, we are continuing this summer program into the fall. Bring a week of reDiscover exploration to your home! We will provide flexible tool kits and materials, instructions for tool safety, video chat guidance for parents, and exciting activities to take both child and parent on a journey of skill building and imagination. We will give you prompts and projects to fill 2-4 hours per day (taking breaks when needed). If you want to keep going, the sky’s the limit!
