This summer Parts and Crafts hosted a number of different programs, covering all interests from music to robotics. Of special note this summer was the Girls Invention Week program. This one-week program was open only to girls as a safe space for an introduction to Parts and Crafts and all it has to offer. In July Parts and Crafts expanded to programs based around music and technology, allowing children to create their own music as well as their own computer programs. The Science and Spectacle program focused on the basics of physics as well as hands-on learning centered around building sculptures to demonstrate kinetic movements. Parts and Crafts hosted two more programs in August, this time with themes of Imaginary Worlds as well as natural and artificial life.
While Parts and Crafts provides an amazing set of options for children in Somerville, these programs do cost several hundred dollars. Thanks to the support of our donors Parts and Crafts provided a great summer experience to 10 lucky Somerville children.
