One Saturday of each month, from Sept. 8, 2018 until May 18, 2019, the museum invites kids 8-12 for a “learning by doing” experience that has kids exploring the world of innovation and turning their own ideas into reality.

In addition, The Tribute Rosies from the Yankee Air Museum are set to visit this month, too. Learn all about Rosie the Riveter and how women like her aided in the war effort during World War II.
