NOVA and WAAAM are MAKING STUFF!

WAAAM has been selected as an official MAKING STUFF outreach site!

WAAAM Volunteer Doug Davee and crew will be leading the NOVA MAKING STUFF activities at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. NOVA is collaborating with 75 sites nationally to provide the material and media to “make stuff” colder, wilder, safer and faster through a series of projects that include hands-on activities and design challenges based on the four themes from MAKING STUFF.

As an outreach site, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum will offer the MAKING STUFF programming in our upcoming February 8 and March 8 “Second Saturday” events at the museum.

Join us for the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of WAAAM’s new expansion on February 8 at 1:00PM. In addition, WAAAM will host activities that correspond with the first two episodes of MAKING STUFF – MAKING STUFF Wilder and MAKING STUFF Colder. These activities are included with paid museum admission and will occur at 11:00AM and 1:30PM. Bring your kids or those that are young at heart and join WAAAM Museum Volunteer Doug Davee in “making stuff.”

NOVA’s groundbreaking series MAKING STUFF, hosted by technology expert David Pogue, focuses on the personal qualities that underlie the process of invention – the visionary talent, sheer luck and dogged determination that turn a wild idea into a cutting-edge material. Now in its 40th season, NOVA is the most-watched primetime science series on American television, reaching an average of five million viewers weekly. NOVA airs Wednesdays at 9:00PM on most PBS stations.

Thanks to these sponsors for enabling the NOVA MAKING STUFF outreach program.
