Builds ‘N’ Bytes Night – Simple Machines

February 21, 2019

Event Navigation

It’s Brews, Builds and Bytes Night!

An adults-only (19+) tinkering with simple machines event.

It seems like kids get to have all the fun: light up sneakers, bouncy castles, movies with talking animals and nap time. But what if you could have all the fun and excitement of being a kid for one night?

Escape the everyday routine and join other like-minded humans at the pub or cafe for a few brews and experiments with science, art and technology.Early Nerd and General Admission available.

The cost of your ticket includes:

  • 1 free Happy Hour beverage of your choice;
  • 2.5 hours worth of tinkering instruction;
  • A cotton-ball catapult of your own creation (have a vendetta to ride?)

In celebration of Rube Goldberg’s famous chain reaction machines, we will be:

  • Exploring simple machines;
  • Experimenting with our own Rube Goldberg Machines;
  • Making cotton-ball catapults.
