MuseumLab Workshops (Available September – May)
For students ages 10+

 Makey Makey
$2.00 per participant
5th grade - Adults
Computers are very good at doing the same thing over and over again, exactly the same way - but they need directions. Explore, play and create programming using apps like Scratch with MakeyMakey technology. Create your own interactive game or animation and add a custom made controller by connecting everyday objects using MakeyMakey.

 e-Textiles
$2.00 per participant
5th grade - Adults
Combine sewing AND electronics! Work with e-textiles, also known as soft circuits, in a focused field trip. Explore using conductive thread to move electricity through fabric.

 Stop Motion Animation
$2.00 per participant
5th grade - Adults
Experience storytelling by creating a short movie with stop-motion animation. Stop motion animation is a video made up of individual photographs, making small changes, one frame at a time.

 Design Challenge
$2.00 per participant
5th grade - Adults
Work with teams on a design challenge. Craft Rube Goldberg chain reactions, create the speediest zipline, or try different techniques to build a bridge.
