Kids home from school again tomorrow? Running out of things to do to keep the learning going (unexpected break in the school schedule be damned!)? I've got a wonderful (FREE!) option for you.
The James Dyson Foundation in partnership with the Chicago Public Library is supporting students by offering hands-on engineering workshops every day the strike continues. All this week, the Foundation will host workshops to engage students through practical activities at various Chicago Public Library locations. Participants will build rover racers, construct marble runs, and craft geodesic domes. Even though classes aren't in session, they'll be learning! Snacks will also be offered to students. These workshops will be fun and action packed. See below for all of the details on the remaining workshops (for this week anyway).

- Thursday September 13, 2012 – Harold Washington Library (Chicago Loop 400 S. State Street
