ASC to offer Tinkering during Bash on Barraque event

The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas is inviting everyone to its Tinkering studio from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Bash on Barraque-Harvest Festival, hosted by Pine Bluff Downtown Development.

Participants will have an opportunity to build a Silly Circuit Spider, a fuzzy blinking arachnid that is an exciting way to learn about electronic circuits.

Tinkering is sponsored by Central Moloney.

The center, located at 701 Main St., is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1-4 p.m. Saturday, and is closed on Sunday. Support for ASC is provided in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Hands-on science exhibits are offered through the center’s partnership with Arkansas Discovery Network, a consortium of seven museums in Arkansas funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
