National Building Museum

Building Connections: Start it Strong

Sunday, March 10, 2019
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM


Ages 5 and under with adult.

This March, join us on Sundays for Building Connections. Each week budding builders will learn about various aspects of building a structure, from design to demolition. Programs will encourage young learners to explore the world we build through movement, play, and hands-on learning.

Sessions will build upon the skills gained in the previous program. It is not required that you attend all five weeks: each program can be done independently of the others.

Free. Space is limited to 25 learners. Online registration is closed. Day-of, on-site registration is available. 

Start it Strong

Learn about foundations and test the strength of different materials. Test the strength of a variety of objects by tossing, jumping, and stomping. After learning about the foundation of the National Building Museum, stack bricks in different patterns to find the strongest way to build.

Join us each Sunday at Building Connections:

March 3: Plan it Out

March 10: Start it Strong

March 17: Build it Up

March 24: Make it Nice

March 31: Knock it Down
