There’s more than one way to spin a yarn. Create and share your own stories as we explore the art and science of storytelling.

6th – 8th Grade | RoboMakers

Build your skills, then build your robot! Makers will take a deep dive into the world of robotics as they gain experience with fabrication, engineering, electronics, and coding. We’ll explore each area of robotics through hands-on skill-building sessions, and makers will apply what they’ve learned to mini-projects and design challenges. The program will culminate with a multi-week project in which makers design and prototype custom robots.

Get ready for Earth Day! Become a steward of the planet — a “planeteer” — and make fun projects that spread awareness of global environmental issues and help the planet.

4th – 5th Grade | Room Reimagineers

Reimagine, reinvent, and remake your room! Using tools and techniques from KID Museum’s Maker Studios (Woodshop, Electronics Studio, and the Digital Fabrication Lab), makers will design creations to enhance their rooms — from storage to nightlights and more. Learn the basics of construction with saws, drills, hammers, and other tools, then enhance these projects with electronics and laser engraving. Your room won’t know what hit it.
