Come create with us!

Our MAKE IT! series is back.  Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m. we offer awesome activities in Fulton's Workshop. Each will have a focus or theme, but you can also come and explore the workshop if that week's activity isn't up your alley. Alternate activities include micro:bit hands-on, our new Lego Wall, cardboard construction, magnet wall challenge, wind tunnel and many more. Come on in and we'll show you around!
