3-5, 6 and up, All Ages

Make your own shadow puppets! Engineer moving parts and choose unique pattern and color combinations. Then, learn about the science of light as you test your creations. What shapes are the shadows? What colors? Can you make them appear larger?

Open daily. Check the Museum's online calendar for hours.
Create something, solve problems, and explore STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math).
