Facilitated Workshops

Build a Book + Shrinky Dink Keychains

Thursday – Monday
10:30-11:30am + 2:30-3:30pm

The Museum's makerspace

The Rosso Family Foundation Innovators LAB is our collaborative makerspace where we work with local artists and experts from various fields to create a design challenge to nurture creativity, problem solving, skill building and learning.

What sets the Innovators LAB apart from other makerspaces is the inclusion of resident professionals which include artists, architects, engineers and others. These resident professionals develop design challenges alongside our Creative Team to provide open-ended, skill-building projects that explore real world issues. The Innovators LAB targets families with children ages 6-13 and provides opportunities to experiment with a variety of ideas, materials and hands-on techniques.
