Make and Create
NEW! da Vinci Machines: This new program will be offered in conjunction with the exhibition, Machines in Motion, beginning mid-February. Through hands-on experimentation and guided exploration, this program will introduce and reinforce basic principles of physics and engineering, and provide students an opportunity to design and build their own simple machines.
Poetry of Art: Through guided observation, students imagine being part of a painting, exploring the scene “inside-out.” Strengthening their language arts skills, students enhance their descriptive vocabulary by creating stories and images of personal expression inspired by the artworks.
Lab 102: Lab 102 is a rapid prototyping space with a range of hands-on activities designed to inspire children to explore their skills in invention, innovation, problem solving, and collaboration. Flexing their abilities in these key areas builds confidence and empowers kids to succeed, not only in school and play, but in their futures. The Lab 102 program is on hiatus during the run of Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion.
