PA Day Adventures

We're all set for another year of PA Day Adventures! On September 27, join us for History in the Making!

Registration now open for 2019/2020 Dates:

Ever wonder what life was like before technology, machines and electricity? From moving stones to making homemade greeting cards, discover the lost art of traditional crafting as we explore how simple skills were used to improve the life of a pioneer.

Hallowe’en is coming! Need a jetpack? What about a new hat? Maybe a bag for supplies? Today we’ll spend our time working on simple costume items and learning about easy tricks to create a new look. Make and take something great!

Wind and solar energy are all around us. How do they work? Make some different ways to harness it. Design and test different wind machines to catch the breeze. It’s all just blowin’ in the wind!

Bend it. Shape it. Let's have fun with light! Learn how to create a circuit and get making with LED lights. What can you make shine?

What’s stronger, a triangle or a square? Let's make structures and test some theories about materials and shapes. And by test we mean, ‘FIRE THE CATAPULT!’

How do birds fly? How do planes fly? What can we make fly?! Test your skill and savvy during our roto-copter competition.

Water water everywhere!  It has shaped our world and we can’t survive without it. Today we’ll play with water and learn how it can be harnessed for energy and for fun! Be prepared to get wet! Make a slip and slide and test the science of water balloons.
