Join us for an exciting new program for kids and their caregivers to explore simple circuitry and engineer unique paper creations with working lights!

In this 90-minute session, kids and their grownups will investigate circuits using copper tape, small LED lights, and batteries. Then, we’ll experiment with ways to make paper creations – like greeting cards, paper sculptures, or homemade books – that light-up with some paper circuit power! Advance registration is required. This program is designed for children and their caregivers to enjoy together.

Where: Discovery Museum PlayLab

Cost: $10 per person (does not include Museum admission)

Who: 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.
