Recycled Material Crafts

Most of our outreach programs, field trips, and even Steamin’ Days involve crafts using materials donated to us by our wonderful volunteers. We try to find projects that are fun for kids and parents and that encourage kids to think about the process of engineering. We ask kids to plan and design their project, whether it’s a car, a train, a rocket ship or anything else they can think of, create a prototype of their design, test it, and then repeat the process to solve problems and improve their creations. 

Here are some of our favorite projects:
