The Play Tinker Make (PTM) program is centered on engagement. While all PTM activities have a basis in science, the foundation of the interaction between the visitor and PTM volunteers is the experience not the science. PTM volunteers are focused on engaging and supporting the visitor with an activity, with less emphasis placed on communicating science content and more emphasis on facilitating the experimentation, helping visitors with the activities and providing opportunities to talk and share their experiences.
Provide museum visitors , with hands-on, engaging, interactive activities to help them learn by using their five senses, to become more familiar with tools and using their hands, and inspire them to apply science to make things long after they leave the museum! Volunteers work every other Saturday (11:45-4pm). Shifts consist of a brief group meeting, pairing up with another volunteer, and facilitating an activity on the museum floor.
