Discovery Saturday + Family Workshops
Saturday, March 24th 10:00am-2:00pm

Spend the day creating and discovering with friends and family during Discovery Saturday.

Included with $4 admission

IN THE MAKER’S SPACE…Fizz, Boom Science
What a reaction! This Discovery Saturday learn all about chemical reactions, from ordinary to violent. Mix a solution, make a battery, watch an explosion! You won’t want to miss this “reactive” day.

IN THE DISCOVERY GALLERY…How Things Work: Engineering + Innovation
From concept to construction, visitors actively participate in STEAM education while learning about energy, motion, force, and other engineering concepts. Design, build, and test your ideas, solving problems and finding creative solutions along the way.

  • Explore force, energy and motion through experiments with a giant Newton’s Cradle, magnetic ball/tube walls, pulley systems, catapults, parachutes and more. Six simple machines will interactively demonstrate concepts including levers, wheel and axle, inclined plane, pulley and screw.
  • Delve into the artistry and innovation of engineering concepts and designs throughout history – from the pyramids of Giza to the International Space Station! Soak up the engineering brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci, Alexander Graham Bell, Gustave Eiffel, and Emily Warren Roebling, among others!

AM Workshop (10:30 – Noon) Lego Robotics: Life Detector with Jennifer Rodabaugh
Bring the whole family to team up on engineering your very own robot much like the Mars Rover! We will use familiar and loved Lego pieces to build a Rover complete with a motor and motion sensor, while also learning simple computer coding.

Fun for the Whole Family | 10:30 – 12:00 PM | Saturday, March 24 | Limited to 6 teams/families of 2 people per team.

PM Workshop (12:30-2:30) Fermentation & Pickling with Shelby Wheeler
Join us as we dive into the art of fermentation. We’ll talk about the dangers  and ease of wild fermentation, moving past the well known cucumber pickle to kombucha, sour kraut, kimchi and more. You will be sent home with your own ferments to try and recipes.

Fun for the Whole Family | 12:30 – 2:30 PM | Saturday, March 24 | Limited to 12 people.
