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!

Come explore hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) projects for all ages!

 

We want to:

  • Create a fun interactive learning environment 

  • Emphasizes imagination and creativity 

  • Make curious and thoughtful learners 

 

Come at any point to participate. 
 

Free for museum members  |  Regular admission rate for non-members

Make It! Schedule

June 20 Paper Mâché Mask   Create amazing paper mâché works of art to take home using recycled paper, cardboard and other materials.

June 27 Cardboard Castle   This group project will involve working with other Make It Builders to create a castle! As visitors come they can begin the structure, and continue building as others arrive. This will be an exercise in building, collaboration and community.

July 4:  Fireworks in a Jar    Keep the sparkle of fireworks near with this mini-sensory jar! You'll choose the colors and combine the materials to make a suspension mixture to celebrate the 4th of July!

July 11:  Seltzer Rockets   Using simple chemical reactions we'll see how high our rockets can fly! This is an outside activity. If the weather is inclement, we'll make straw rockets to test and launch inside Fulton's Workshop.

July 18:  Popsicle Stick Catapult    Using simple materials we’ll build a catapult to test the concepts of physics!

June 13 Marbled Paper   This historic art form is often seen in old books and manuscripts as end leaves and endpapers. It is so named because it imitates the veins of colored marble. And it's so much fun to make!
