Professor Gizmo Is BSCC’s First Artist in Residence!

Professor Gizmo’s Workshop is offering Kids-Build Workshops at the Bay Spring Community Center as part of our Artist in Residence program!

Professor Gizmo’s Workshop is a Rhode Island maker space, proud to be part of the Make Magazine community. The workshop was created to get kids involved with hands-on building projects that interest and excite them. Kids are natural builders and artists! Figuring out how things work helps them develop engineering problem solving skills, confidence, and creativity that will last a lifetime.

Workshop founders Gary and Annie Deslaurier have been teaching building, science and art based enrichment classes and summer programs at schools throughout the Rhode Island area for over fifteen years. They offer programs in a wide variety of local public and private schools. As guest artists, they have also enjoyed teaching at The Pennfield School, New Art Center in Newton, Mass., and Walnut Hill School for the Arts. As part of their community involvement, they have participated in the Robot Block Party in Providence, the STEAM Connections event at Barrington High School, Primrose Hill and Hampden Meadows School Math and Science Nights, and Family Night events at the Gordon School.

Workshops include the Great Egg Build Challenge, the Ping Pong Ball Launcher, Scribblebots, the Mad Marble Run, and Frankentoys.

As Professor Gizmo says, “It’s time to build!”
