Maker Wednesdays at Turtle Bay
Presented by Charter Communications
Turtle Bay offers guests a unique opportunity to participate in hands-on learning with Maker Wednesdays, a series of special events led by educators and volunteers.
Maker Wednesdays encourage guests to learn by creating and making, with new activities and topics with each program. Additionally the “Maker” movement aims to foster creativity, critical thinking and build confidence with children, as they develop innovative skills.
“Maker Wednesdays are a great opportunity for people to try new things, develop 21st century life skills, and for families to come together and create,” says Laurinda Willard, Education & Programs Manager. “Each program features a single activity with endless possibilities for individuals to create their own experience.”
Turtle Bay’s Maker Wednesday events are included with paid Park admission and always FREE for members. Below are a few upcoming programs, held in Turtle Bay Exploration Park Museum:
