16th annual Domino Toppling Extravaganza returns to Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) on Sunday, October 8, at 5:30 p.m.
During this STEAM, trades, and career exploration day camp, girls and gender-expansive youth will gain first-hand experience with carpentry tools in a professional work environment. Through hands-on projects campers will learn to make wood toolboxes, picture frames and a step stool – all while gaining valuable skills, making new friends, and discovering new opportunities to pursue careers in the trades.
Rosie’s Girls welcomes into the program anyone entering grades six through eight who identifies as a girl regardless of assignment at birth. BUILD camps also welcome youth who are non-binary or gender expansive who are comfortable in a girl-centered space.
Each BUILD camp session will focus on basic carpentry skill-building. Tools that campers work with include hammers, screwdrivers, measuring tools, hand saws, chop saws, jig saws, and power drills. They can also learn to use orbital sanders, hand sanders, paintbrushes, wood burners and other hand tools used to finish or decorate their projects.
