Since November is WE CAN GIVE BACK MONTH, I am passing on this e-mail from The Works.  What a great way to give back while getting rid of things that no longer work.  Note that Saturay is Tech Take-Apart Day, and for the price of admission ($8/pp), you an participate in the fun of taking apart all these old electornics.


Let us destroy your unwanted electronics!
Bring in your old, broken, and unused electronics such as computer towers, VCRs, DVD players, phones, and other gizmos and gadgets. Your trash is our treasure!
We’re currently accepting donations of unwanted electronics for our Tech Take-Apart Day (from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, November 23) and for upcoming camps.
To share your “treasures”, just bring them to The Works Museum Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. -5 p.m., or Sunday 12-5 p.m.  You can give them to the front desk greeter during our open hours, or ring the buzzer to have someone meet you at the door.
Your electronic trash will create hours of fun as children dig into the guts of machines to see what’s inside and how they work.
Thank you!
The Works Museum’s Programs Team
P.S.  No monitors, printers, or TVs please.

Families enjoying our 2012 Tech Take-Apart Day.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
