Scrap Exchange, you will find all sorts of fascinating odds and ends, donated by businesses and individuals in the area. Scrap recently moved to a new location, and on Sunday, October 5th, a grand re-opening event was held, with food trucks, art, make & take, raffles, music, and a marching band!
We set up a Poplocks Make & Take table - many children came by to learn how to create simple flying toys of all varieties - Vortex Flyers, boomerangs, whirligigs and flying disks. I challenged some young builders to a gliding wing papercraft - starting with a simple non-flying paper airplane. One young woman made the most stable glider to date - stay tuned for the design instructions (so you can try your own modifications for better flight).
I also had homemade kits for sale at the event. I plan on having these for sale through the website soon, so stay tuned!
Thanks to Allie for helping out at the table all day!
