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 where you create objects to take home. 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

  • Pull the lever to fill one of six molds with fluid
