Make It! Lessons
Make It! Lessons are 30- to 45-minute STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) activities in Fulton’s Workshop to challenge families and friends to learn, marvel and make together! We'll provide the necessary materials and a volunteer will be on hand to help with the STEAM activity. In some cases, a small materials fee is associated.
Materials and instructions for activities will change monthly.
Dunn County Finders
A finder is someone who looks for and finds interesting objects, then seeks to learn and write down the story behind them. In the process you’ll become a historian and scientist — discovering, questioning, learning and sharing your finds! Learn more in our brochure:
