The Future Bus is a mobile maker space, learning lab, and inspiration studio for kids and teachers in the Beaverton School District. We get kids excited about learning with fun, activities that involve art, music, robotics, and science. We lure teachers on the bus with good coffee and give them space and time to explore new ways to evolve their craft.
The Future Bus returns to Pickathon this year with…
Build your own Cigar Box Guitar (Friday/Saturday/Sunday)
Join us in our workshop and build a three string, fretless, acoustic/electric cigar box guitar. Or maybe you made a guitar last year and you’d like to make an amp? Space is limited, so stop by the Future Bus and sign up early.
It takes 4-6 hours to build a guitar and we have a flexible schedule so you can spread the work throughout the day or weekend and still make it to all the performances that you want to see!
Kids age 12-18 are welcome to build a guitar on their own. Kids from age 8-12 are welcome to join if they have a parent or adult partner to work with them.
