HOW PEOPLE MAKE THINGS

January 21, 2023 through September 4, 2023
How People Make Things tells the story by linking familiar childhood objects to the process of manufacturing that combines people, ideas, and technology.
Inspired by the factory tour segments from the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood television series, this exhibit offers hands-on activities using real factory tools and machines to create objects through four manufacturing processes – molding, cutting, deforming, and assembly. Visitors can use a die cutter to make a box and a horse, deform a wire into a spring shape by winding it around the metal shaft, assemble a trolley, and test your skills on the testing track.
