Kids Create: Arts and Engineering!

10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Explore STEAM Learning at Kids Create: Arts and Engineering! @ Roebling Museum
The Roebling Museum, located in the historic village of Roebling, NJ, is ready to host another of its family-friendly programs. On Saturday, July 21, 2018, we celebrate summer by exploring STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts/architecture/aesthetics and math!
Kids and their families will have the chance to view a musical performance and talk to students from ITS Thespian Troupe #7892, NYC High School Performing Arts students, as they preview some of their original musical they have written about the life of Emily Warren Roebling, the woman who helped engineer and complete the Brooklyn Bridge. This theater troupe has been selected, out of hundreds who applied from across the country, to perform at the world’s largest performing arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. They are the only student group from New York State chosen to perform this year. It is a rare opportunity for visitors to the Roebling Museum to meet them, see them perform and to hear them talk about their process.
Visitors to the Museum can also enjoy our fun-for-all-ages, Bridge Building Lab, and participate in STEAM-based engineering and art activities such as creating jewelry with their name in binary code and testing unconventional building materials.
Museum staff and volunteers will help children and their families experience a day of fun projects that teach STEAM concepts in new and interesting ways. More than fun and games, families that attend Kids Create can enjoy becoming junior engineers and designers as they learn, play, and turn STEAM ideas and concepts into tangible experiences. Kids Create: Arts and Engineering! will run throughout the day on July 21st , from 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
Admission is $5 dollars per person. Children age 5 and under get in for FREE. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.
Experience the Roebling legacy with your children, through STEAM learning and play!
