Event Description

Bring your kids and teens to the museum for an afternoon of "maker-space" activities with Big Sky Learning.

Participants will be able to:

  • Build their own Shake Bot—a small simple robot that shakes—and take it home for FREE!
  • Learn to work with real tools using safe techniques
  • Understand more about simple circuits during the building process
  • Hear about Big Sky Learning’s Build It! Summer Camp and school year offerings  

Most kids are hungry for an education that they can relate to.


Experience has taught us what scientists are now confirming. When kids learn effectively they:

  • Know that their learning relates directly to their lives
  • Feel safe, valued, and confident in themselves
  • Are able to “see” what they are learning not just read or hear a bunch of words
  • Move around and work with their hands while they are learning
  • "Create" their own understanding of a subject rather than just memorize symbols and instructions
  • Are rested, hydrated, and free from the roller coaster rides of sugar and caffeine

"Children want to become more confident and effective people in the busy world that surrounds them. Give them the right teacher in the right setting and the sky is the limit."  - Michael Sheppard, founder of Big Sky Learning
