Make It Move invites visitors of all ages to be inventive using simple materials and building skills to make their creations come to life. Build a robot, a catapult, a whirligig, or something completely new! Where will your imagination lead?

The Buffalo Museum of Science can help you figure out how to Make It Move. We have the tools, supplies, and know-how to get you started.


Learn to use gravity, rubber bands, leverage, or wind, to propel your imagination.


Use our fully supplied build stations to transport your design from concept to reality. With a wide assortment of materials to choose from, your building options are unlimited!


Tryout your machine on our test track, take your creation home, or add it to our Maker Village so others can be inspired by your design.

Make It Move is included with Museum admission and free for BMS Members.
