This children’s make & take event, held at the historic Billings Depot, is brought to you by Billings Public Library Foundation, Wise Wonders Children’s Museum, Billings Depot, and SCRaP. It’s a maker movement event designed to teach children about steam energy and trains, enabling kids ages 2 to 12 to participate in sensory activities, experiments, train rides and reading.
The maker movement is a trend in which individuals create products from unused, discarded or broken electronic, plastic, silicon or virtually any raw material. During this event kids will be able to roam about and participate in any of the activities they choose.
The library’s new pedal-powered library will be onsite to give each child a free book on trains to take home with them, along with their experiments and activities!
The event will take place from 1pm to 3pm at the Billings Depot and offer enough activities and supplies to accommodate up to 200 kids. Supplies for the activities and experiments are being donated by Walmart.
