AHS graduate brings SparkTruck to Aberdeen
Aberdeen High School graduate Aaron Peck will join other team members as they bring the SparkTruck to the Aberdeen Timberland Library on July 17. Peck and his team members are driving across the country in the vehicle teaching children about science and technology
The SparkTruck, in partnership with Instructables and PBS’s Design Squad Nation, is running workshops at schools, camps and museums in their nationwide tour. The truck is filed with 21st century shop tools like a laser cutter and 3D printers, and it brings these tools, space, and resources for sparking creativity to children.
SparkTruck will be parked at the Aberdeen Timberland Library located in the library’s parking lot at the corner of I and Wishkah Streets for the following workshops:
• 1-2 p.m. Creature Vibrobot Workshop (suggested ages 7-12)
• 3-5 p. m. Creature Copter Workshop (suggested ages 10-13)
Please call the library at 360-533-2360 to register. There is a limit of 20 children per workshop.
These workshops are made possible through the support of the Friends of the Aberdeen Timberland Library.
