Family & Youth Discovery Day: Things Come Apart

Saturday, April 7
Drop-in program, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Free with paid admission

Did you know there are more than 100 parts in a Keurig coffee maker and just six pieces in a pioneer coffee kettle? April’s Discovery Day will highlight the design and engineering behind everyday objects with hands-on activities including STEM building challenges from the Smithsonian’s Spark!Lab and a deconstructed Café Mocha take-home activity using pioneer replica coffee grinders. This program is based on Things Come Apart, our limited-run exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution.

Supplies are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.
