Join us at The MINT for a summer of fun like no other!  On Thursday, August 18th from 4-8pm we're making Vortex Cannons!  Learn about air currents while shooting at targets with "donuts" of air. Use power tools to build a big Vortex Cannon, play with some medium sized ones, and build a mini one that can knock over targets! Can you design a cannon that will shoot farther?  Use our smoke machine to visualize the air leaving your cannon. 

This is a drop-off session for teens (generally kids 13+ but younger kids are welcome if they will be able to complete the project without caregiver help).  Bring dinner or a snack and a water bottle.  Pre-registration is required. $10 per person, 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.
