Mini Makers: Animal Inventors

Imagine, invent, problem solve, and more during Mini Makers: Animal Inventors!

In this program, children will engage in design thinking as they learn about recycling and reusing through story time and hands-on building. There will be opportunities to try new tools and to use them in a safe and supervised environment. Once complete, each little engineer will have their very own up-cycled creation to take home!

Attention caregivers: Please bring one clean recyclable item (e.g. plastic bottle, cereal box, paper towel tube).
