Makerspace

About

Imagine, collaborate and create something awesome.

In 2019 Makerspace will be revamping its approach to education and community engagement. We are offering free workshops grounded in “high and low tech” with an emphasis in open ended learning. Visitors can expect free two hour sessions which will be hosted by a skilled member of our Maker staff.

Free
Price

This exhibit is free.

Call our box office at 314.289.4400 for more information.

Workshops are designed for families with children ages 7 and up.

Activities

What’s inside.

Air Ball

Play and experiment to learn how wind effects different objects. Then use the materials to create a game you can teach to someone else.

Float and Fly

Create an object using simple materials, then put it to the test and see if it flies. Once you’ve conquered the air, adapt your design and make it float.

Sail Race

Design a sail using Tinkertoys and fabric, then send it flying down the racetrack. Can you modify your sail to beat the best time of the day?

Ball Run

Assemble the magnetic pipes to get a ball from start to finish on one side of the ball run. Work as a team to try to get the ball around all four sides of the cube.

Rigamajig

Use everyday building materials like wood, screws, rope and brackets to create clever contraptions.

Workshops

Makerspace Workshops

Enjoy 2 hour sessions offered twice daily hosted by the Maker Team@reg;. Visitors are welcome to stay the full 2 hours or for 2 minutes.

June, July, August, September Workshops

Little Bits and Droids
Snap together these “bits” and create something amazing. Visitors will be able to build a contraption of their own design or even an R2D2 droid. Come to maker and learn the basics of robotics and coding.

Cardboard Workshop
What can’t you make with cardboard? We supply the materials and you bring your creativity.

Mount Goldberg
In this table top, Rube Goldberg workshop, create a crazy chain reaction to erupt a volcano. This activity is inspired by our new Omnimax film and exhibit; Pompei. So, come by the classroom and see if you can make a track to trigger an eruption.

Basic Bike Maintenance
Bring your bike to Maker and tackle some basic bike repair. We will supply the tools, computers and space. You bring your bike and a willingness to try something new. Let’s keep you biking this summer and learn about simple tools in the process. Don’t forget to check out the garage for some simple bike repair demos.

Thematic learning objective:

Patrons will gain the basics to a wide range of program offerings and technical skills. This diverse approach to informal education/interpretation will direct participants into project based learning and cross generational collaboration.
