Inspired by the “Makerspace” movement that has spread into museums, across the country, our Sparks and Makeshift workshops support learning in an informal, play-focused environment that cultivates an interest in science, technology and design using new technologies and basic tools. These spaces offer scheduled activities where visitors can discover their inner-engineer with no limits except your curiosity and creativity. Sparks is designed to inspire families with younger children while Makeshift is for more in-depth exploration.
