Mid-Winter Break Activities: Engineering at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

These fun, educational opportunities offered Feb. 15-19, 2016 at the popular kid-centered institution are the perfect cure for mid-winter break boredom.

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is always a place where your budding engineers and little scientists will feel right at home.

That will still be the case during the upcoming mid-winter break from school, but the museum is offering an added bonus that week: Special engineering-related activities included with the price of admission.

The kid-friendly Washtenaw County destination will host drop-in activities each day from Feb. 15 until 19, 2016. The program includes experiments with circuits, designing and building structures, creating chemical concoctions and more.

The special activities are also an early way to celebrate National Engineers Week, which is Feb. 21-27 this year.

Engineering activities will be available 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15 through Friday, Feb. 19 in the museum’s Legacy Gallery. No registration is necessary.

While you’re at the museum, also be sure to check out favorite exhibits like the tornado, water tables, whisper dishes, full-size ambulance, climbing wall and the popular Bubble Capsule.

Bringing a little one along? Stop by the Preschool Gallery, which is designed for ages 4 and younger and features water tables, dress-up play and a child-sized fire engine.

Admission to the museum costs $12 for adults and children, and is free for babies 0-23 months.
