Join us for three activities that play with motion.
An art form developed in the 19th century, crankies employ simple mechanisms to hand-crank paper scrolls that result in moving images. Grab a milk carton and scroll and craft your own moving panorama.
Make a Victorian-era toy that spins two pictures into a single image with the help of string and persistence of vision.
Make a zoetropic pinwheel that, with the aid of a mirror, creates a distinct animation when spun.
Use everyday materials to create models and other tools for exploring the world around us. Run by a highly skilled, dedicated team of volunteers, these drop-in workshops mix classic activities with open-ended investigations, encouraging participants to follow their hunches to aha moments of scientific insight.
All materials provided; take what you make.
Explorables has been offering science to go since 1990.
