Join NYPL and CMOM this summer for our 7-week science club at your local library! CMOM educators will lead weekly workshops exploring simple machines and their unique functions. Students will learn about gears, pulleys, wheel and axles and much more through hands-on demonstrations. They will also build models such as cars, planes and paddle boats, leading up to a culminating activity where they work collaboratively to build a Rube Goldberg mechanism. Presented by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. For ages 6 and older.
