Salinas Community Science Workshop

Tools in Your Hands!

welcome

Imagine a world where every kid had access to the tools and materials necessary to build the projects of their imaginations. 

The Salinas Community Science Workshop makes that dream a reality for the kids of Alisal. At the Science Workshop, kids and families can use tools and explore the world with science in a free and fascinating environment.

What you can do here

Nearly anything you want! Come have a look at our tools and materials and think about what you want to do. Common projects are wood construction (shelves, boxes, etc.); simple electrical circuits with motors, lights, buzzers and magnets; puzzles and toys; planters; throwing machines; bike and scooter repair and modification; slime, oobleck and volcanoes; cars, airplanes and boats; and rockets, both water and air.
