Car Theft for Kids

Now here’s an unusual but very interesting class!  The Walker Art Center is sponsoring a seminar entitled ‘Car Theft for Kids‘.  This seminar is a hands-on workshop for parents, children and teens where participants will learn to break into a car, hotwire it, and escape from its trunk!

For most kids (and adults), modern cars are simply these gleaming, aggressive-faced jellybeans that house air-conditioning units and MP3 players while they idle in traffic. But underneath their shiny surface lurks all manner of exciting machinery that needs some demystification. That’s where we come in. In this class, we’ll focus on a few key aspects of cars while learning a bit about the physics and mechanics behind how it all works. This is a hands-on workshop, with an actual car to break in and out of. Taught by car historian and inventor Jason Torchinsky, who has already successfully guided at least six children in Los Angeles towards future grand theft auto.
