About Expanded Second Saturday (Family Day)

Join us for a day of fun and discovery at our Expanded Second Saturday -- Family Day! Children and their caregivers are invited to explore different stations in the Museum and make a take home craft related to the day's theme. Expanded Second Saturday (Family Day)are quarterly family programs held on the second Saturday of the months of November, February, May, and August. The Museum will continue to have Second Saturday at the Museum from 1-3pm on all other months of the year. Both Second Saturday at the Museum and expanded Second Saturday programs includes hands-on activities, make-and-take crafts, and an opportunity to explore the Museum’s exhibits. These programs are FREE unless otherwise specified. Participants and their families can also explore the Museum free of charge during the program.

About Technology Day

During the program, children of all ages, along with their care-givers, will rotate between five stations where they will have an opportunity to learn about different forms of technology from the past and present including navigation, electricity, water power and mills, 3-D printing, and light technology. The make-and-take craft this month will be pinpoint cameras, which will be hosted in the light technology station. Once children have completed all five stations, they will be awarded Little Engineer status and will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievements.
