Walder Science


Woodshop will resume when deemed safe per COVID-19 guidelines. Meanwhile, Walder Science is committed to helping parents keep children learning and engaged during this time. Please visit our Daily STEM Learning page for robust STEM resources including science videos, math videos, riddles, and a weekly raffle!

The Woodshop invites boys in grades 5-8 to learn basic wood working and carpentry technique.  Each Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30-6:15pm, the boys practice and learn how to properly use basic tools in wood working projects.  Beginners and advanced students (our regulars) work at their own pace under the instruction of our expert carpenter, Mitch Erlich.  Participants complete a project (such as a table top shtender) that they can take home approximately once a month.  We only use hand tools, instead of power tools, in the interest of safety.  Participants typically sign up to come twice a week, or once a week, on Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays.  This is a great way not only to learn wood working and have fun, but also for the development of fine motor, visual, kinesthetic, and spacial learning skills.
COST: The cost is  $90 for one day per week (8 classes),  $175 for two days per week (16 classes) or $12 per individual class.
If you are unable to make it to a class you signed up for and need to cancel, it must be done at least 2 business days in advance in order to be given a refund for that class.  We need enough time to contact the boys on the waiting list in the event of cancellations to allow them to participate, and we have to purchase materials and arrange for staff in advance for each student.
LOCATION: The Woodshop is located at 2819 W. Touhy Ave, next to Kesher Stam.
