Getting ready to install woven wheels by Acton Elementary school students for the Applecycle fund raiser in  support of the Community Bicycle Center in Biddeford! Wonderful  biking through western York county! October 14th!

The 21st Century Library is really changing! Enjoyed my residency at the Curtis Library in Brunswick. Kids coming to the Collaboratory made good use of the
bicycle chain spirogrphs!

This summer the Rotary Park wheel sculpture in Kennebunkport got a renovation to
repair the UV damage that occurred over the last five years. STEAM question of the month! Why was the blue Sterling rope more resistant to UV damage?
Thanks to the kids at Biddeford's Annual Bacon Street Festival for help restoring the wheels!

I do really love Maker events! This week it was Maker Day at the Portland Public Library while 1000 people supporting Science were marching by (and some of them dropped in later)

Bike Part Art had analog engineering in Pop-Up boxes and bike gear spirographs not just for kids only---many unaccompanied adults took part!

Another great invention by kids participating in "Kinetic Toy and Design" at Firehouse Arts
several years ago. "Rolypoly" is now on the Bike Part Art menu. Formed and riveted from 
recycled industrial scrap metal.
