MAKE

MAKE is a fun workshop space for children that encourages creation using various materials.

Children are asked to use the supplies given to complete a creation challenge. These challenges ask the children to use their imagination and creativity to solve it. The challenge changes every two weeks so there is always something new to create.

For the most part, the creation is self-directed, but occasionally museum educators will step in and lead a small program for guests. Maker spaces encompass open-ended creativity and instill confidence and a sense of accomplishment in a way that’s fun for children.
