Sept. 24, 2016 – Jan. 8, 2017
INVENT, DESIGN and TINKER at the Discovery Center’s Makerspace, back by popular demand! The exhibit allows guests of all ages to get creative with hands-on activities and challenges.
New this year are a giant kaleidoscope where visitors can create their own colorful designs, and sewing machines for designing with fabric and other materials. In addition, the mini-maker area has been expanded to include a caterpillar table with activities specifically for the youngest tinkerers.
Makerspace will also feature special hands-on activities, including:
- Create a folded paper “thingamajig” and test its flyability at the wind table
- Be a pinball wizard as you construct a pathway for your ball to score points
- Create a work of art and see how it looks through the giant kaleidoscope
- Build a marble coaster and watch the effects of gravity and motion
The Makerspace exhibit is included with general admission and free for members.
