Description:

One last hurrah for Tinkering & Trains!

We're celebrating the run of our holiday exhibitions – Tinkering Garage and All Aboard for Trains – with some hands-on fun the whole family will enjoy! 

Activities:

  • FOUR STROKE ENGINE
    Examine an interactive model of a four stroke engine to learn more about how basic combustion engines work. You’ll also experience an up close look at a lawn mower engine and get a better idea of what powers the vehicles that help us get a job done!
  • BUILD A RAILROAD CAR
    Using blocks and wheels, design and create your dream railroad car! Once the car is built, test the car on a gravity powered track in an attempt to build the furthest traveling car.
  • IT’S ELECTRIC!
    Learn how electricity moves down a track with this fun and exciting lab! Using snap circuits and light bulbs, complete a series of electrifying challenges.

PLUS, you can step into the Tinkering Garage to try your hands at a guided activity, team challenge, Storybook STEM challenge or create something YOU dream up.
