ABOUT JAY MANKITA


Jay Mankita has worked with kids and families for over 30 years. His engineering workshops are experiential and inspiring. His musical concerts are refreshingly positive and fun.

Jay has a strong passion for engineering and making things move, and teaches how he learns - with patience, humor, and lots of room for mistakes!

When he's not engineering, Jay is an award winning and masterful songwriter, guitarist, humorist, and performing artist - a seasoned veteran of the children’s circuit as well as the adult americana/folk scene.

He's a dad, a teaching artist, and a lifelong learner, and tries to live by the same principles he shares in his Rube Goldberg Machine workshops - start with your goal, and work your way backwards. Keep each part simple. Obey the laws of physics. Have fun!
