Lego Engineering at Town Hall

March 6, 2017

The Friends of the Holliston Public Library brought Play-Well Tek to Holliston to expose kids to basic engineering skills.

This was the third annual event put on by the Friends for the benefit of Holliston's future engineers. Workshops were run by Play-Well TEKnologies in three sessions: 10-11:30 am; 12-1:30 pm; and 2-3:30 pm.  One group per session is for ages 5-7 and the other is for ages 8-12. All legos and instruction were provided.

Keeping watch during the middle session were, left to right, Chryso Lawless, Kristy Wiwczar, treasurer of the Friends, and Leslie McDonald, Library Director.

Debbie Miller, above, started this annual event. She said that the $10.00 fee does not cover the cost and so she was asking participants if they would be willing to pay $15.00 next year to allow the Friends to make a few dollars.

Instructors for today's sessions were Harry Blakely, above left, and Abigail Gilmore.

"Gear cars" was the theme. The instructors built the car above in front of the kids and then sent them off to build the same car and then add legos to make each one their own. With a battery pack and a cable attached to a controller the car could be driven all over the upper town hall.

The instructors were always close by to answer questions. Although most kids were there alone, there were a few parents who couldn't resist "helping".

Noah Keller, age 5, had no trouble building or driving his Lego hot rod.
