STEM Saturday

November 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Get those wheels turning this weekend with STEM based activities power the play across the museum the third Saturday of each month. Come play your way through Science, Technology, Engineering & Math based activities that are so fun, kids don’t even know they’re learning!

Calling all creators and builders! Come join us in the Tinkering Tank this month for STEM Saturday at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 18th. Our friends from Home Depot will be joining us with their one-of-a-kind Kid Workshop kits for all children to enjoy building and painting with their grown-ups! These workshop kits from Home Depot come in a variety of hands-on building fun for guests to create, with the guidance of some Home Depot employees alongside you! Will you build an airship with hammers and screwdrivers, or will you get to paint and design your own fish tank?! Whichever surprise kit you are to receive, it is sure to be an exciting afternoon at the museum! This event is free with admission, and will take place in the Tinkering Tank on the museum’s 3rd floor while supplies last, or until 3:00PM!
