EcoTinker Interactive Exhibit

OPEN DAILY MARCH 15 – MAY 31, 2020

Head outdoors this spring and explore our tech and tinker stations – 5 stations where you can learn about recycling and consumer science. Consider questions like: what is trash? Where does it go? How does it affect the world around us? What can I do to make a difference?

Imagination Playground will return this year. We are proud to incorporate Imagination Playground materials into our stations for amazing educational engineering play. Included with General Admission and FREE to CNC Members.

Fixing and Remixing

Use big blue Imagination Playground blocks to engage in free play and discover the benefits of modular design.
