Binikou ~ The Human Powered School workshop

Free Human Powered Workshop!

Offered by:
Binikou ~ The Human Powered School
where kids, teens, and adults collaborate in exploring simple, sustainable science for a better world!

August 21st
Somerville Public Library
79 Highland Ave

All ages, curious kids and teens age 4-19 especially encouraged! We're also looking for folks to offer a mini lesson/demonstration during the workshop. Anything that's simple and appropriate for all ages that shows a solution to helping people get more whole food, clean water, fresh air, warmth, light, or ways to use excess human solids, liquids, gases, and/or energy is great! I'm especially interested in featuring (fresh. local, plant-based) green foods, solar energy, and human powered machines for this workshop.

Check out the blog at for more information.

Peace, Love, Bicycles, and Binikou!

    We had a lot of fun! I think the kids most enjoyed playing with the human powered blender while we made green smoothies, and in thinking of ways to get more greens into their diet (mint jelly donuts was one amusing suggestion. :-) The fresh cantaloupe from Drumlin Farms (which I picked up at the Union Square Farmer's Market in the morning) made the most amazing smoothies with some spinach (also from Drumlin) and local chard and woodsorrel, along with some frozen (non-local) bananas and blueberries. This was a more casual workshop, but future ones will hopefully have more people show up on time, so that we can really do some collaboration, brainstorming, and experimenting in teams.

    I just made a huge amount of kale chips for the workshop! Kale chips are perhaps the best foods ever invented. Yay!
