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.

Enjoy the 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 also features special hands-on activities throughout the run of the exhibit, 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.
