EK “Try”athalon

We may be stuck at home, but there are still so many Arts and Sciences to learn!

Each week the MoAS office will feature a new introductory level A&S project that can be completed using minimal materials, or materials you can find at home. If you have the time and energy, consider participating and trying something new. We encourage the populace to:

  • Post pictures of your efforts on the Facebook event page that we will create for each project.
  • E-mail pictures of your work to moas@eastkingdom.org for us to feature on the website.

Have a project idea? Please let us know. We will be looking for project sponsors, and would love to feature your project and have you encourage and help our artisans to try new things. This is also a great way for teachers, who might not be comfortable teaching online or in a group setting, to reach students.
