June 1st: Ozobots Explore Force & Motion

This fun, engaging activity combines programming skills and science content! Kids can use their knowledge of force and motion to code their Ozobots and just how much weight it can push when you change its speed.

June 6-8: Ozobots Explore Force and Motion

This fun, engaging activity combines programming skills and science content! Kids can use their knowledge of force and motion to code their Ozobots and just how much weight it can push when you change its speed.

June 13-15: Da Vinci’s Bridge

Leonardo Da Vinci, an Italian inventor and artist, was tasked to design and engineer machines for war. One of the devices that he invented was this bridge that was easy to build because it did not require special skills, fasteners, or many men to build it. Can you build it?

June 20-22: Skin & Fingerprints

 No two people have the same fingerprint. Expand your fingerprint to explore what makes you unique by examining your print.  Loop, whorl, arch...which are you?

June 27-29: Bones & X-Rays 

If you’ve ever had a bad fall or broken a bone, you may already be familiar with X-rays. When a doctor needs to see something inside your body, they can use an X-ray machine to take pictures. Using our light tables, see if you can identify the part of the body you are looking at, and assemble the X-rays into a full human skeleton.

July 5 & 6: Nebula Spin Art

Nebulas are responsible for mixing up and spreading out elements in space. In this activity, you will make your own nebula using a little bit of paint and a lot of fun.

July 11-13: Cubelet Engineering

Cubelets are magnetic blocks that snap together to make an endless variety of robots. Come test your engineering skills and see what you can build.

July 18-20: Brain Hats

Our brains are responsible for everything we think, feel, say, and do. But how does it manage to do all of this? Explore the different lobes of your brain and make and take home a brain hat.

July 25-27: Spirographs

Interested in how gears can be used to create beautiful geometric artwork? Then you will love spirographs! Come see what you can make using our spirographs and take home a nice piece of art.

Access to the STEAM Machine is included with general admission to the museum.

$12 adults/$12 seniors/$12 kids/Kids 2 and under are free
