Maker Studio is a pop-up space designed to give guests ages 8 & up an opportunity to engage with local Makers and have hands-on making experiences. The program is included in exhibit admission, but space is limited and preregistration is required.

TAKE PART IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s Research and Learning Center aims to immerse museum guests in the scientific discovery process as it brings researchers into the Innovation Studios to share their research with the public. Museum guests will have opportunities to learn from these scientists as they participate in current research studies, discuss research with the scientists, and find out how the research impacts their day-to-day lives.
