Build It Lab – open 10:30 AM-3:30 PM

The holiday season is all about giving. In December, CMA’s Build It Lab will be transformed into a holiday toy workshop where you can design a special toy that you can give to a friend or loved one. Projects will include creating a toy helicopter, car, and ball catcher! Children will enjoy this supervised space where they have access to real tools and materials needed to spark creativity, nurture curious minds, and ignite the next wave of innovators. Woodworking and other popular maker skills encourage visitors to be curious, creative and innovative.
