(depends on selected options)

Base fee:

  • If you currently receive SNAP or 3 Squares benefits or housing assistance from the state, please use this registration option.


Join us for a summer of fun like no other!  On Saturday, July 17th from 9-11am, we're making gravity powered mini racers!  We'll use recycled and repurposed materials to build a vehicle that can roll down an inclined track.  Learn about potential energy as your vehicle waits at the top of the ramp to roll down. Experiment with different types of wheels, axles and weights to find the combination that makes your vehicle go fastest.   

Kids ages three and up are welcome.  Kids between age 3 and age 5 must have a caregiver stay for the session, kids 5+ can be dropped off if desired, but caregivers are welcome to stay and learn alongside. Dress for some mess - we'll be using markers, paint and glue.    

Pre-registration is required. $10 per child, with discounted registration for COVID Impacted families and free registration for SNAP, 3Squares and housing assistance.  Choose the registration option that matches your family situation, no proof of income is required.  Our summer programming is made possible through Expanding Access grant funding, administered by VT Afterschool.  

A place for tinkerers, makers, and small businesses to have space, contacts, and equipment to thrive. If you possess a passion for creating and making, a MINT membership is for you.
