The Return of the Ultimate Recycling Machine

October 18 @ 11:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Join us at Pretend City as we engineer our own recycling machines! Children will work together with peers and adults to design an “invention” that transports a plastic bottle into a recycling machine, using different tubes, pulleys, pendulums, and zip-lines!

Time:  Open during general operating hours

*Subject to available staffing and Traveling Exhibit Closures.

Grown-up Tip: Take a tip from Trash for Teaching. Next time you are about to discard an item and cast it off as trash think about what it may be re-imagined into. Visit our Pretend City “Go Green” Pinterest Board for re-imagining inspiration!

RSVP:   Not required

Fee:    Included with museum admission
