Are you up for the Make Space Challenge? Join us Fridays 9:30 a.m.-noon, Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. to create and build in Children’s Museum of Illinois Make Space. Kids and families will be given a challenge and will need to use hammers, recyclables, and their ingenuity to solve the problem. Can you build a rover that could be used on Mars? What about creating a monster with glowing eyes? Put on your thinking cap and start MAKING!

$1 per project for children aged 2 and older
