PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pleasantville Recreation Department wants to keep your kids entertained -- and educated -- this summer.

The village department has announced three programs in August for children that will have them laughing and learning.

  • Aerospace Engineering by Engineering for Kids. Children in entering third through eighth grade will use the engineering design process to design, create, test and refine a variety of flying machines.  Children will have fun constructing a shock absorbing system designed to protect two marshmallow astronauts in a lunar vehicle, create their own air-powered rockets and assemble a hot air balloon that actually takes flight. At the Recreation Center 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Aug. 19 through 23. The cost is $320.00.
  • Water Color Adventure By KidzArt . Boys and girls entering first through fourth grades will explore some interesting properties of water. They will build a model water slide park, paint a killer whale on canvas, design a futuristic underwater vehicle, paint with ice, draw an underwater fish café, experiment with printmaking and take home some artwork. At the Recreation Center 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Aug. 26 through 30. The cost is $200.
  • Lego WeDo Roboto .  Using Lego bricks, students entering kindergarten through second grade will build a dancing bird, a smart spinner and a drumming monkey.  They will also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer. At the Recreation Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 19 through 23. The cost is $320.

Pre-registration is required for all the programs. For more information, visit the village's website .
