Learn how to build a marshmallow launcher, a cardboard machine, or a tiny lathe, all from simple materials. See an enchanting puppet show of The Jabberwocky, plus juggling, origami, and much more.
Market Days are free, open-air mini-festivals that bring together museum and community scientists, artists, and educators on third Saturdays from June to October. They feature curated art and science demos, hands-on activities, exhibits, and craft displays.
