Beam Center’s Inventgenuity Festival
Beam Center's Inventgenuity Festival is back on Governors Island with a wide array of creative activities and a celebration of its latest youth-built public artwork, Tree Chuang.
Cyanotype Portraits: Create a portrait of your family member, friend, or yourself using found objects and a collection of random materials. The best part? You'll print them using only the sun!
Environmentally Triggered Rube Goldberg Machines: Explore the interconnectedness of the environment and the far-reaching effect of small changes as you design a Rube Goldberg-style chain reaction machine that is triggered via an environmental stimulus.
Circle Rules Football: Inspired by Beam's enduring love of Circle Rules Football, workshop participants learn how to play this classic - and quirky - game.
The Big Little Camp Project: Drawing inspiration from this year’s big project at Beam Camp, workshop participants make their own miniature stalagmites and collaboratively create a scale model of As Above, So Below.
Admission is FREE, but advance registration is required.
