All Ages


Chairman’s Circle and Catalyst Circle donors and their families are invited to celebrate springtime with an evening of family fun.

See the surprising and delightful ways local makers and artists incorporate ordinary springs into their work, get hands-on with our spring-y exhibits, and tinker with springs in the Tinkering Studio. We hope you’ll join us!

Family-friendly refreshments will be provided.

  • Performances by The Human Slinky
  • Flinging your body with AcroSports
  • Hacking clothespins to make a movable toy
  • Exploring machine-made springs with Instructables
  • Gertie the hopping robot
