Junkyard Wars- are you ready for a challenge? Families, you can compete to earn prizes in this special competition. With supplied materials and tools, families will be challenged to create a kooky contraption to perform a specific task. Will the task be to launch a ball, squirt water, hoist something into the air, or something else entirely? You’ll find out on challenge day! Families will have one hour to engineer or build their creations before testing it. The program is free to register and participate. All participating families will receive an event t-shirt. A limited number of registrations are available. The family that wins the May 6 competition at the LCM will qualify to participate in the final challenge at the Milton Maker Space on Saturday, May 13 from 2:30 pm-4:00 pm and compete against the finalists from the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum and the Milton Maker Space. The Junkyard Wars finalists will receive cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. This program is made possible by a grant from Remake Learning Days of Northeastern PA and is hosted in collaboration with the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum, Hand in Hand Family Resource Center, and the Milton Maker Space.
