New Spark!Lab Activity: Contraptions In Action

Are you fascinated by Rube Goldberg Machines? Do you have a young inventor who wants the challenge of building their own? Check out the Spark!Lab and our newest activity station: Contraptions in Action.

Created by two all star Ambassadors, Doug Holcomb and Jack Rosenfarb, this is a newly designed activity created specifically for the Morris Museum's Spark!Lab. Even the staff cannot help themselves from inventing. Thank you Spark!Lab ambassadors and happy teachers appreciate week!

Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by leadership support from BASF Science Education in North America. Generous support is also made possible by Gay H. Osborn on behalf of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.
