3 More About my Activity

Join this exciting camp with an arts & engineering focus. Each day you’ll have a theme: a standing sculpture (people, monsters, pets), a game (skee ball, foosball), something that moves (car, catapult), & your inventions (a tank for your cat?). Join us and CREATE!

6 My Guide!

Hello, I'm Glenn. I have had a lifelong interest in science, technology, nature, math, building things, & much more. Perhaps what makes me unique is that when I dress as a mad scientist, my friends tell me it's not a costume. Hope to see you in my classes. Until then I need to work in my secret lab on my d̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶r̶a̶y̶ hamster maze.

I regret to admit that I have eaten a brain sandwich...
