Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturdays
Every Saturday, every month (10am - 3pm)
It’s a weekly celebration of American ingenuity. We call it Tinker. Hack. Invent. and it takes place every Saturday. Join our Tinker Task Force and have a blast trying your hand at all sorts of things. Americans are famous for their ingenuity and resourcefulness, for their eagerness to improve and explore new ideas. This is your chance to learn firsthand how that spirit is alive and well today. Come explore your own ingenuity. Try your hand at something new, something different. The activities change month to month. Hands-on. How-to, DIY, science and more! The only limitation is your imagination. And it’s free* with museum admission or membership.

*Some supply fees may apply.
   
Monthly Themes
Each month we’ll offer a new project! Soldering, electrical circuits, and crazy concoctions are just a few of our themes. So you can return month after month for more tinkering fun!

(Activities are subject to change.)

January – Learn to Solder & our “Engine’s Exposed” special activity.

  • Beginning Saturday, January 9, makers ages 12 years and up can participate in a “Learn to Solder” workshop, and make their own blinky circuit board. Activity cost is $7.00 (Cash only please. Workshops start every 30 minutes from 10am to 2:30pm in the museum plaza, while supplies last)

  • To complement the museum’s “Engines Exposed” programming, we’re offering two special activities in the museum plaza on Saturdays in January (begins 1/9).

    • Automobile Clay Modeling – Design your own car model from clay. You can purchase your model for $3.00 (cash only please). Recommended for ages 5 and up.

February – Smashes & Crashes

  • Many people have tinkered with innovations in automotive safety. Join us as we explore these "bang-up" ideas! Each Saturday includes safety demos at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm, building and testing your own egg crash creation and making a cool car coaster that celebrates the museum's Engine Exposed event.
