Now is your chance to not only get all the great items you want, but to do it knowing you are helping support our organization and mission. Here are some of the programs that occurred in 2019:
Free Friday Night Workshops
Guest experts led weekend workshops and Free Friday drop-in
programs in collaboration with PCM educators. Children were able to
work alongside guest experts such as Pneuhaus designers to create a
piece on display in the Maker Studio and to build an inflatable that was
set aloft in PCM’s assembly space. John Paul McCaughey, local artist
and educator, presented screen printing techniques and welcomed all
guests to drop color onto a tote-bag to take home. Raffini from Rhode
Island Black Storytellers, shared story and drama around a pretend
campfire out in the Children’s Garden.
The Maker Studio and Innovation Lab
We opened two state-of-the-art spaces: the renovated
Maker Studio, to inspire imaginative play and creative expression,
and the new Innovation Lab, to introduce technology through the
magic of tinkering and take-apart exploration. A series of programs
accompanied the new spaces, including Prototyping Pinwheels!,
Rubber Band Powered Helicopter, Balloon Powered Inventions,
Puzzling Shapes, Balloon Powered Cars, Magnet Play, Playing with
Light & Shadow, Marshmallow Shooters and Whirligigs. Founder of
Cambridge-based Maker Studio “Parts & Crafts”, William McFarlane
served as Creative-in-Residence for the inaugural year.
