It’s more than an exhibit… It’s a mindset!
SCI’s Summer of Making celebrates those who tinker, build, experiment and collaborate. Making is a way of thinking, of using familiar objects in unfamiliar ways, of focusing on the process rather than the end result.
Summer of Making includes:
Explore the design process in this interactive exhibit space on SCI’s Main Level. Experiment with circuits, create a stop-motion animation video, build a flying machine and more!
Find your inner maker during Studio Time, Monday through Friday in the Makers Studio. Projects include everything from fort-building, robotics, circuitry.

Des Moines Mini Maker Faire
It all culminates in the Des Moines Mini Maker Faire on Labor Day - September 2, 2019.
Part science fair, part county fair and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, artists, educators, crafters, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors and students. All of these "makers" come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and share what they have learned.
