Free Live Stream: On Wheels

“On Wheels” is a road movie, a coming of age drama, aimed at a young audience. Lucas, a 13-year-old boy, is wheelchair bound after suffering an accident. Laís, a 12-year-old girl, helps her mother selling breakfast at a truck stop, in the small town where they live. The girl would love to meet her father, a truck driver who left when she was a child and never returned.

STEAmpunk Academy Presents: Virtual Ginger Bridge Contest

We are going virtual this year with our annual Gingerbread Bridge Building Contest! Your mission is to build a 9" bridge using gingerbread that can support the weight of many fruitcakes. Instead of being given supplies for you to build the night of destruction, we are giving you a week and letting you get your own materials to do it on your own time. Then you will drop off your bridges at Kiitos Brewing, 608 West 700 South, on Saturday Dec 5th and we will live stream the judging and destruction that night.
