We recently let visitors take apart and explore the inner workings of a broken printer/copier. The piece was generously donated to the MAKESHOP by our Visitor’s Services Department.
This was a big project that spanned several days. It was a lot of fun dismantling these devices. Taking something apart is a great way to develop visitors’ curiosity for exploring the world around them. If you take something apart, then you can start to understand how something works.
We’ll be taking a lot of stuff apart during the month of February, especially old toys! Start collecting those broken, damaged, or boring toys and stay tuned for opportunities to bring them into the MAKESHOP!
