A wonderful Israeli artist and educator brings her moving toys workshop to the Exploratorium. All families are welcome, and the workshop is ideally suited to children age 6 upwards.
The Exploratorium, founded by noted physicist Dr. Frank Oppenheimer, is a unique hub of immersive science exhibits and learning, encouraging visitors to engage with scientific phenomena at the heart of our perception of the world.
Following its recent move from the Palace of Fine Arts to a nine-acre campus at Piers 15 and 17, in the center of the city, the Exploratorium will showcase its expanded Tinkering Studio, which is a ‘workshop for playful invention, investigation, and collaboration'. This space, which allows staff and visitors to learn new ideas from artists from around the world, will host a workshop with noted Israeli designer and educator Noga Elhassid for the day.
The artist featured in this exciting collaboration is bringing her Moving Toys Workshop from Israel. The workshop is designed to teach kids basic physical phenomena and mechanical principles through play, with a focus on special education students. The toys are made out of simple and recyclable materials.
