Tiny Builders Starts This Week, Clubs Start Soon!

Family Club is a fun, evening class designed for a child K-5th grade and family/caregiver(s) to take together. We provide pizza, and a fun, new robot project every week for families to build together! Kids K-2 will build and take home a cool robot that moves, lights up or both using LEDs, gears, motors, and special switches. For kids in 3rd-5th grade, you may register  for the Programming option, and work on an advanced robot each week that is controlled by a computer; it’s a great introduction to coding!

Clubs run for four weeks and are $140 plus a $60 material fee.

Activism Event This Thursday, 2/9

You may have noticed a new tab on the BRF website: Activism. We are going to start hosting activism events in our spaces because we want to let this administration know that we will not idly sit back and watch.  We want to show our kids that we will fight for equality and fair treatment of all humans. Want to help us? It’s easy!

Thursday, February 2nd at 6:30-8:30pm:

  • Event will take place at our Gowanus location, 303 3rd Avenue in Brooklyn.
  • We will provide all of the materials necessary to write to our senators: postcards, mailing addresses, stamps and etc.
  • Bring your kids! Our staff will provide free childcare and help kids write letters if they want, too. Please note that we will not be building robots at this event, but just babysitting.
  • We will have pizza! Please bring $5 to cover the costs of food. This event is BYOB.
  • Please RSVP so we know how many staff are necessary for childcare.
  • If you wish to donate money at this event, 100% will go to a TBD organization such as the ACLU.

Please click here to RSVP or add yourself to our Activism mailing list.
