NOVA's MAKING STUFF Rescheduled

MAKING STUFF programming will occur on March 8!

WAAAM Volunteer Doug Davee and crew will be leading the NOVA MAKING STUFF activities at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Our first Making Stuff event got snowed out but that hasn't stopped us from pressing onward.

All four activities based on Making Stuff: Wilder, Colder, Faster, Stronger will take place on March 8. These activities are included with paid museum admission. Bring your kids or those that are young at heart and join WAAAM Museum Volunteer Doug Davee in “making stuff.”

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.

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.
