Creative Education Highlight!

We brought super-reuse to the Lauri Ann West Community Center as part of their Summer Camp Series. Participants designed and created their own superhero costumes out of reclaimed materials. When their costumes were finished, they were able to explore their super powers through play!

Check out our upcoming summer camps (Re:Maker Marble Runs, and Re:Maker Dioramas) coming in August.
