Danger! Danger! YuKonstruct has created a new workshop series to bring out the mad scientist in you.

The workshops in the Don’t Try This At Home series will allow participants the chance to safely learn about dangerous materials and forces, under the guidance of experienced instructors.

Logan Sherk, YuKonstruct’s Facilities Manager and Acting Executive Director, is a licensed pyrothenics technician. According to Logan, “This is what makes makerspaces great! These workshops are an opportunity to try the fun stuff you can’t do at home. Who doesn’t love fire and electric sparks!?”

Topics in the February and March courses include high voltage, thermite casting and creating flame effects.
