BTC’s Wish List


Brookline teens are working hard creating awesome stuff in our Makerspace, and will soon be doing the same in our kitchen.  Whether it’s building a bamboo bike, constructing a quadcopter from parts, designing a indoor hydroponics system, or making baba ganoush from scratch our teens are building skills and having fun while doing it. 

Our Makerspace and kitchen could use a few more resources to support the teens creating awesome stuff.  Check out the list below to see if you have things sitting around that could be put to good use at the BTC.  Reach out to George at if you have something on the list that you would like to donate.
