In a hands-on and interactive setting, participants will learn about basic kitchen skills and simple recipes, money and budgeting, basic first aid, time management, laundry and more.

Participants work in teams to create a fully functioning hovercraft that is powerful enough to support the weight of one teen and then race them afterwards!
