Broken? Fix it!
Grand Opening Saturday, September 26
Is it broken and disposable or can we fix it? It’s up to you to diagnose the problem and make the repairs. From dolls in need of patching to misfiring train track circuits to flat bike tires, there is a large variety of fix-it opportunities. Developing “fix-it” skills involves problem-solving, critical thinking, experimentation, collaboration and 21st century learning. Figure out why the family car thumps and clangs, repair Grandma’s favorite plate and discover how different cultures embrace the broken. And don’t forget to confess previously undisclosed accidental breaks in the “Truth Booth” – a great way to get that weight off your chest.
Broken? Fix it! was created by the Long Island Children’s Museum. The U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services is a national sponsor.
