Build Your Own Model Pinball Machine – March 10

Saturday, March 10, 11 am – 1 pm, Ages 8+

Did you ever think about how a pinball table works? Through colorful diagrams and illustrations, learn about various aspects of playing pinball and the science behind pinball machines. Then make your own cardboard model pinball machine that can be played. Scientific concepts include movement, gravity, balancing weights, friction and angles. This workshop helps support the Simple Machines topic of study within the local school curriculum. Learning this science is not only fun but may also help you become a better pinball player! Each registrant receives the 48-page book, “Pinball Science: Everything That Matters About Matter” and a 84-piece, pre-scored cardboard pinball machine kit that they will make during the workshop. This is an official NJ Makers Day Program. Space is limited. Register early: Participation fee: $5. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
