Free Take and Make Kits!

We’re partnering with the Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) for their upcoming “Sound Sandwich” Take and Make Kits! These kits will be available at the library starting Monday, 3/9 at 10am, and at the Sciencenter starting Wednesday, 3/11 at 10am. We’re so excited to be a part of providing this fun musical STEAM activity to the community. With this kit, you will be able to make a musical instrument similar to a harmonica from the included craft material. ♪♫♪♫

When it’s available you can pick up this Take and Make kit at the Sciencenter or TCPL during open hours! The kits are free and given out on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Additional thanks to the Cornell Center for Materials Research Families Learning Science Together program, and the National Science Foundation for making this program and kit possible.
