Join us as we partner with TechShop to celebrate the Science of Making on May 16. Witness making in its many forms, as TechShop members exhibit everything from giant bubble machines to sacred geometry jewelry!
Walk through each level of making and learn more about the wellspring of innovation, creating new products and value in our city. Sparks will fly in the Works Theater as we fire up our foundry to cast aluminum and get a chance to watch TechShop demonstrate an oxy-acetylene torch. We'll also be cooking with chemistry in our Kitchen Theater where Science Center presenters will be making (and you can sample) liquid nitrogen ice cream!
Plus you can participate in hands-on workshops for an added charge.
