in the Maker Hub
Activities can take 20-60 minutes to complete, but stay for as little or long as you like. Free with admission, the Maker Hub is open weekdays from 2:30-4:30pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am-4:00pm.
See below the activities we’ll be doing throughout Fall 2022.
Mess around with balance and explore the center of gravity as you create and assemble your own mobile.
Explore and experiment with mechanical motion as you create your own moving art. Along the way, discover how simple mechanisms like cams, linkages, and levers work to generate different types of movement.
Learn how to wire a circuit and explore electricity as you create your own light-up card, paper sculpture or other illuminated object.
Explore gravity, the transfer of energy, and more as you play with physics while assembling your own chain reaction contraption.
