All Hands on Science: Cranky Critters

Child making a kinetic sculpture from everyday materials.
All Hands on Science: Cranky Critters

With Viv Altmann

Join us for an all-ages hands-on workshop where you can create an artifact to take home with you! We’ll repurpose and reimagine everyday materials to create little mechanical marvels.

Create your own Cranky Critter—a whimsical kinetic sculpture that animates a character’s tail when a crank is turned. You'll use a small wooden block, some wire, craft foam, and other decorative materials to create your critter.
