About the Event

From medieval machines to musical instruments, Inventors' Workshop immerses you in creative thinking and engineering. Invention is a “messy” process where you learn by doing and making mistakes, which are necessary to inventing.

The Chevron Maker Annex is a place for children to design, construct and showcase their work through both pre-paid and drop-in workshops. All workshops are designed to expose participants to a handful of tools and materials, from hand tools to 3Dprinters and laser cutters. The space encourages kid makers to tap into their creative potential with access to real tools and high-tech resources.

ON-GOING ACTIVITIES:

Holiday Toy Workshop

Become like an elf in Santa's workshop as you use given materials to build classic and modern toys, like the ball and cup game, Jacob’s ladder, and fidget spinners. And the best part is you can take home your creation!

Programmable Tree Lights

Ready to use the left side of your brain to create a marvelous display? Use computer coding software to program a light show on a Christmas tree.
