Bring your imagination and curiosity to the Fairbanks Museum for some inspired, out-of-the-ordinary fun. These programs are designed to spark creativity and nurture curiosity in all ages. Find out what makes things tick … and what happens when you let your mind wander. We’re dedicating this week’s adventures to inventions — how they work and what you dream up!
Choose from open-ended, hands-on activities that will give you ideas for more ways to explore and experiment. Each program is guided by a Fairbanks Museum educator.

Museum STEAM Room
Come create one-of-a-kind pieces in our mini-makerspace! Check out three different maker-stations for hands-on activities of your very own design.
You’ve heard of the Jack-o-lope (a legendary creature rooted in actual science!) and the Fur-bearing Trout, what mythical animal hybrid can you create? Take advantage of our taxidermy forms and all the supplies you need to make a custom handmade piece of your own!
Make simple insect robots that walk, crawl, and jump using motors, batteries, and other simple parts. Learn basic electrical theory while having fun building insect bots.
Upcycled Artist Station
Upcycled art is a win-win! It reduces waste in our landfills and gives us a chance to use our imaginations to create something truly new and unique! We’ll bring the tools and supplies, you bring your imagination. Join us to make a special piece of art that is truly one-of-a kind!
All stations are designed for ages 5+. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
