Family STEM Day – Crash Test Contraptions
September 19, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Design, build, tinker, and learn together as you explore the world of automobiles and its relation to science, technology, engineering, and math. On the third Saturday of each month, you and your child, grandchild, or family can spend quality time together exploring activities available in the Education Studio and Family Zone.
Learn how cars are designed to keep us safe. Create a vehicle to use in our variation of the traditional egg drop experiment.
After your experience at the Museum, head down to Foss Waterway Seaport for their Steam Weekend – they are thrilled to welcome back the Northwest Steam Society who will bring a collection of their steamers to moor at the Seaport’s dock. The boat owners plan to share their steamers with Museum guests, demo and explain how they work, plus answer all your “steam” questions. They will provide plenty of steam whistle sounds to support this event. If you have never seen these delightful boats, now is the time to come to the Seaport…they are amazing! Some lucky museum visitors will enjoy a short cruise! Free with paid admission to the Seaport. More details on the event here.
