Celebrate Presidents’ Day at the Discovery Museum with the annual Maker Day. This special event will feature fun, hands-on activities designed by Museum educators to stimulate young minds and get them building, testing, and seeing their ideas in action.

Special activities will include:

  • Coding room, sponsored by Code Ninjas: code hearts and snowflakes for 3D printing, and take home a 3D-printed keychain
  • Create your own museum exhibit: use an array of materials to build a 3D model of the ultimate exhibit for your dream science museum
  • Rube Goldberg machine, sponsored by the engineering department at Sacred Heart University: build a Rube Goldberg-style machine using recycled materials
  • Make a tree: help Discovery Museum to make a giant paper-maché tree
  • Geometric builders and tangrams

There will also be live science demonstrations and planetarium shows throughout the day!
