The Museum’s Tinkering Tuesday program encourages children to do what they do best – let their curiosity take over! Explore the world of engineering by building machines and creating processes, and then explore what happens when you make changes or do things differently. Programming takes place approximately every other Tuesday from
2:30 – 3:30 p.m. on the Museum’s STEAM Cart at announced locations in the Museum exhibits. Photo courtesy of Anixter
