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!
Use our laser cutter to make your own slotted sculpture pieces: flat, 2-D materials that slot together to create a 3-D sculpture. Make a moose with four pieces. Make a rocket ship with two. All with zero tape.
