Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.

Join us for an exciting new program for kids and their caregiver to explore simple mechanical concepts and create cardboard automata—a moving sculpture!
In this 90-minute session we’ll investigate levers, cams, linkages, and other mechanisms to make and decorate automata you can take home. Experiment with ways to engineer and decorate a toy that moves up and down, spins around, and more!
This program is recommended for children aged 7 and up with an accompanying adult. Due to the nature of the materials we’ll be using, we cannot accommodate children under 5 to be present. Museum admission is NOT included in the workshop. To visit the museum before or after the workshop, please make separate ticket reservations.
