MindSpark's programming generally focuses on youth workshops built around STEAM -- science, technology, engineering, art and math -- but throughout the year, events like Tip & Tinker invite adults to come out and play. "We really wanted to create an experience for adults that lets them explore some of the fun things we do with the kids, but we also want to create awareness for our youth programs," says Maia Stone, MindSpark's executive director. This evening's project, making a light-up winter beanie using e-textile methods, is being put on in collaboration with Art of Winter, which runs through February 8 and focuses on art and the snow-sports industry in Colorado.
Tip & Tinker begins at 6 p.m. at Converge Denver, 3327 Brighton Boulevard. The event is $30 per person; save a spot via tipandtinker.org by February 2. For information on other programs, visit mindspark.org.
