Classroom Supplies requests:
Annoying toys needed for robotics class
Next month YIHS will offer an elective block on robotics and we are asking (begging?) for a few noise-making electronic toys. Those plastic presents from beloved Aunt Bezelda which make really annoying sounds would be perfect. We're only interested in the internal electronics. If the original features (motors or plastic bits) are broken, we can still use them. Also, we could use four Remote Controlled cars. Small and cheap are ideal. We only need the cars, not the controllers (the extra box with joysticks or steering wheel and an antenna). Note that these won't be returned. They will be ruthlessly hacked and repurposed for (mostly) educational purposes.
Supplies needed for Soapmaking and Herbcrafting Class:
1 and 2 ounce glass tincture bottles (recycled bottles are fine, we will clean and sterilize them)
12-14 half pint canning jars
12 rinsed aseptic containers (the typical rice and almond milk containers)
- Ben & Julee Agar for the toy fire engine.
- Wild Rumpus Circus for lending their tightrope to the YIHS circus class. (They have a great Circus Arts Day Camp every summer for children ages 7 & up! Visit the Wild Rumpus Circus or call 608-669-6403.)
