Come learn about the science behind the Delicate Forces exhibit and make some cool art to take home! Assemble your very own colorful bobbing butterfly to place on the green roof as part of the artwork Kaleidoscope, or take it home to put in your own garden! We will also create a mechanical dichroic flower inspired by the Delicate Forces “sentinel” flowers in the Conservatory installation.

Your registration fee includes admission to Nicholas Conservatory after class! Pre-registration required. $15 kit includes two different projects designed by Skunk Control, the artists and engineers of Delicate Forces. Recommended for ages 5+ and an adult helper
