What’s On in September

Puppet Pop-Up Studio: SMART Beakers (part of Beakerhead)

SMART beakersSaturday September 19, 1-3pm
Fort Calgary, Learning Centre, 750 – 9th Avenue S.E.

Children (4-12) & Adults: $15
Youth (13-19) & Seniors (55+): FREE (need to register on Eventbrite)

We are thrilled to participate in this year’s Beakerhead with SMART BEAKERS!

Transform an ordinary beaker into a cool puppet with simply engineered blinking eyes.  We’ll add some arms and hands and then animate our puppet to generate some mathematical equations! E = MC2 or a2+ b2 = C2, or how about Puppets + People = Amazing!  You can also put all sorts of other ideas into his/her head; fill it with jello or fluff. Your puppet can be as intelligent as you are brave enough to make it!  Limited to 25 participants for ages 4+ (please note that children and teens must participate with an adult or senior)

Young audiences ages 4-10 will have the opportunity to meet seven adorable pigs (in a canoe), the greedy frog, shadowy creatures from the deep, and other watery puppet characters.
