Discovery Saturday + Family Workshops
Saturday, January 27th 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…The Science of Temperature
It’s hands-on science including experiments with dry ice that demonstrate how heat moves. Build your own iceberg and see the effects of temperatures on materials.

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!

11:00 AM One World, One Sky with Big Bird & Friends (ages 2-6)

You’ll love experimenting and collaborating with lots of colors, patterns, tools and more to create lots of one-of-a-kind art pieces to take home. REGISTER HERE

PM Workshop (1:00-2:30)
Science Experiment Extravaganza with Maggie Rogers
We’ll provide the goggles and lab coats, you provide the curiosity. We’ll explore blowing out candles with sound, work with changing solid matter to liquids, and learn about the unusual principles of non-newton fluids too. Fun for all ages! REGISTER HERE
