An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until August 15, 2021
June 30th – August 15th | Summer Exhibit available for play during operational hours, located in The Traveling Exhibit space.
Grab your hard hats and join us this summer for The Ultimate Recycling Machine, an immersive hands-on experience that combines engineering, collaboration, imagination, and creativity.
Using a variety of recycled materials, work together to innovate solutions to prompted challenges. Or simply build a working fort! Work together as a family, as siblings, as a parent-child duo, or as a team. The Ultimate Recycling Machine is ideal for children of all ages and encourages intergenerational participation due to the limitless opportunities for creation. You will be amazed by how much creativity, tenacity, and teamwork emerge from this simple set-up!
And regardless of what you create, your child will leave with a newfound knowledge of S.T.E.M. including – pulleys, zip lines, pendulums, interlocks, slope, force, gravity, and kinetic energy.
Specifically for: Children of all ages; Grown-ups
Play Partner: Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators; Grown-ups
