March 6 & 8- Animal Helpers March marks the beginning of spring, and along with plants and flowers, animals in North Carolina will be waking up as well! Our Animal Helpers workshop will combine three mini-projects, each designed to help native animals. March 13 & 15- Leprechaun Trap Hands On! is getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day as we plan our Leprechaun Trap! We invite our young makers to the Discovery Room to help us with this amazing contraption. March 20 & 22- Seed Paper Spring is upon us, and the best way to celebrate is to recycle AND plant flowers, at the same time! How can you do this? By making seed paper, which is recycled paper with seeds embedded in the paper. March 27 & 29- Kinetic Sculptures Enjoy the wind and warm temperatures with your own hand made, wind powered sculpture! Combine art and mechanics by making your own unique piece and test it using our fans in the Discovery Room. The mission of Hands On! Children's Museum is to provide “hands on” educational experiences and science programs that stimulate the imagination and motivate learning in a fun, safe environment.
