Kids love to make things at every age! Join Creative Discovery Museum on Saturday, February 15 and Sunday, February 16 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. as we encourage kids to make things using different skills with various materials and technology.
Inspired by the Maker Movement, Make It Days is Creative Discovery Museum’s version of a Maker Faire for children. The Maker Movement is a celebration of the human spirit and its ability to create and innovate by turning everyday items into something extraordinary. Maker Faires are festivals of invention, creativity and resourcefulness that celebrate the Maker Movement.
The art of making is an important activity because it develops fine motor and problem solving skills, encourages persistence and provides an opportunity for creative expression. “Make It” gives kids of all ages ways to explore different types of media and design to make their own unique inventions. Children will learn ideas and develop new skills that encourage them to continue the “Make It” fun at home.
During “Make It” Days, local mentors involved in the Maker Movement will be stationed at each activity to provide expert guidance in the completion of the activity. This event is included with paid admission to the Museum.
Special thanks to the following groups for their help with Make It Day: Chatt*Lab, the Chattanooga Public Library, Society of Women Engineers, and First Lego League.
