Family Discovery Day: Things Come Apart
April 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Drop-in program, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Free with paid admission
Did you know there are more than 100 parts in a Keurig coffee maker and just six pieces in a pioneer coffee kettle? April’s Discovery Day will highlight the design and engineering behind everyday objects with hands-on activities including STEM building challenges from the Smithsonian’s Spark!Lab and a deconstructed Café Mocha take-home activity using pioneer replica coffee grinders. This program is based on Things Come Apart, our limited-run exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution.
In partnership with Bank of America, the History Center offers free admission on the first full weekend of every month for Bank of America/Merrill Lynch cardholders.
Supplies are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.
