Create with K'Nex in afterschool program

Knex byMarcHugentobler

The Blanchard Public Library combines the scientific world with an afternoon of entertaining play for local children in its K'Nex for Kids event, at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13.

It's a look at several simple machines and an introduction to the science that makes them go, from items like levers, pulleys, wheels and axles and inclined planes. The program is geared to ages 7 and up, although 5 and 6-year-olds are welcome with parental assistance.

Registration is not required to attend.
