Anyone know where we can find old bicycle gears? Old metals, motors from cell phones that are broken and irreparable that we
can recycle, old broken radios, resistors, capacitors, electrodes, wires, recycled boxes and containers. Please, if you plan to attend
this event come with your recycled objects so we can turn them into something you dream of.
If you need information let us know; If you can’t remember how to make a circuit. If you can’t remember how to make a galvanic cell we can
work with you. Artists, we can turn chromatograms into some art. We can make electronic sculptures. We can extract liquids from plants
to explore basic properties like acidity and basicity. Let’s make a rocket sculpture and try to let it take off using basic science. Let’s put
our heads together. Let you imaginations run wild. What do you want on 24th? It is all up to you. What do you think or feel when you look up into the sky? What dreams or ideas do you have here on earth?
