Home School Day: Things Come Apart

April 20, 2018 • 1– 3 p.m.

Curious about what’s inside your smartphone or how many tiny pieces make up a power drill? This Home School Day is based on Things Come Apart, our latest limited-run exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution. Explore the inside and out of historic inventions and how they have improved our lives in this hands-on workshop!

Our home-school curriculum was developed especially to meet the standards for Grades K through 5, but all ages enjoy the programs. Bring your 4-year-old or your high schooler – they are sure to have a great time with our hands-on activities and projects!

Cost for each program: Students $10 (members $4); adults $4 (free for members). Advance registration is required. Members (annual pass holders): Please sign in on the registration page to enable discounts to apply.
