Explore what you can make!
We have several types of programs on the weekends: Open Explore, Weekend Workshops, and Maker Studio
Activities usually included with museum admission. A few examples:
Build machines that draw and scribble by using motors, circuits, and everyday materials.
CREATIVE CODING & GAME DESIGN
Use computer code to design your own video game.
Create your own geometric structures using craft sticks and glue.
Facilitated sessions that introduce new skills or materials, including:
LEARN TO SOLDER
Learn the basics of how to solder and explore what you can make using this new skill.
Experience first-hand how to design and print in 3D.
Experiment with new e-textiles and make your own wearable device.
Use the tools and equipment in the studio of your choice (woodshop, electronics lab, textile studio, or digital fabrication lab). As you build upon your skills, earn certification and become eligible for Open Studio time.
For Open Explore activities, children under age 9 must be accompanied by an adult on the museum floor, and children ages 9 – 12 must have an adult on the premises. Parents do not accompany children to workshops, after-school programs, or School’s Out sessions.
