Montshire Makers is a program designed for curious and creative kids in grades 6–8. Design, create, and build something cool with a different activity each month, from October through May.
Each Makers starts with a guided tour of a featured exhibit at the museum. Explore exhibits with your friends and get ideas and inspiration about the evening’s theme.
After a short introduction to the project, get making! You’ll have an hour to make, tinker and create something amazing to take home. We provide tools, materials, know-how, and snacks!
Anything can be an instrument with a contact mic! Learn how to amplify and record sounds with contact mics and an iPad. Back at the Makers studio, use Garage Band to layer sounds together to create your own soundscape of the Montshire.
