How People Make Things
How People Make Things brings the manufacturing experience to life, taking visitors onto the factory floor through hands-on activities in cutting, molding, deforming and assembly. In this exhibit, visitors can:
Cut Wax using different sculpting tools and experience 3-dimensional cutting by hand.
Deform a wire by taking a straight wire into a spring shape by winding it around the metal shaft.
Mold spoons using real melted wax.
Assemble a trolley and test your skills on the testing track.
See Fred Rogers visit real manufacturing factories in vintage Picture Picture videos from the original Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Series.
