Harvest interesting electronics from broken gadgets and use them to create something new to take home!
Maker Studio is a pop-up space located in Innovation Studios designed to give guests ages 8 & up an opportunity to engage with our team and have hands-on making experiences. Each month features a new project led by our staff and involving a small group of homeschool students and their educators. It is a great way to explore STEM based experiences in a small setting. The program is included in exhibit admission, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Reserve a one-hour spot online by visiting here and filling out the online reservation form.
We have created special experiences for homeschool audiences after the traditional field trip groups leave for the day.
Here are just a few of the activities we have planned for you and your students:
Amazing Mazes: Engineer different mazes throughout the Innovation Studios and take one home with you.
Stomp Rockets: Create and test simple paper rockets in Launchpad.
Meet Pepper the Robot: Explore cognitive computing by interacting with Pepper and IBM engineers.
Flight Simulator: Meet Lockheed Martin engineers and fly a Lockheed Martin flight simulator.
Circuitry Connections: Use electricity to bring mysterious electronics back to life.
Scrappy Circuits: Build your own circuit kit to take home using unusual material.
Take Apart: Take apart broken electronics, looking for components that might work again with the right amount of power.
Interact with Engineers: Each day our Museum will be filled practicing engineers available to answer your questions and lead you in engaging challenges.
Please note, Engineers Week activities are included with Museum Exhibit admission pass and no advance registration is necessary. Engineers Week topics, activities and environments are designed for students ages 8 and older.
