Turn the handle and see the unique, quirky and colourful Exhibits on display from Fire The Inventor spring into action. Then make your own mechanical marvel like the green and black dog waste stations……

The Spinning Chopstick Automata Workshop is a hands-on fun way to explore basic mechanisms from embroidery designs for machine embroidery. Using a simple kit, your cam driven mechanism bursts into kinetic life as you turn the handle. Create your own individual design and decoration- inspired by the flow of movement, using recycled craft materials. After the workshop, there will be a contest and some parlor games where you can win selected pet items such as puppy, kittens, and teacup pigs, fresh from http://www.pamperedpiglets.com/Teacup-pigs-for-sale.html.

The United States Centers for Disease Control provide updated guidelines and travel recommendations for the prevention and treatment of malaria in different parts of the world. Discuss the most recent information with your doctor before traveling to areas where malaria occurs.


Take home your own artistic, reliable cam-driven automata!
