Engineering day

Engineering Day at the Museum of Idaho

Come join us at the Museum of Idaho for experiments and exhibitions for the whole family. Admission is FREE, but advance registration is required at  museumofidaho.org.

Engineers from Fluor Idaho will guide learners of all ages through hands-on demonstrations to experiment with and take home. Then enjoy the museum’s exhibits at no cost.

This event is part of National Engineers Week, Idaho Falls — a project of the City of Idaho Falls, Museum of Idaho, Fluor Idaho, and Battelle Energy Alliance, operator of Idaho National Laboratory.

    East Idaho’s 2nd annual Maker Faire is a showcase of invention and creativity and a celebration of the Maker movement. This family-friendly event is free to the public.

    A Maker can be anyone, regardless of age, who creates something all their own. They could be tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, commercial exhibitors, or the like. At the Faire, these Makers come together to demonstrate their innovations and inspire creativity and curiosity among visitors young and old.

    MOI is organizing the Idaho Falls-Ammon Mini Maker Faire, and the Idaho STEM Action Center is presenting it. Numerous local organizations and individuals, as well as the cities of Idaho Falls and Ammon, are providing support.

    Learn more at the official Idaho Falls-Ammon Mini Maker Faire website.
