Tinkering with Tools, 12:15 pm, ages 4–7
See ya, September! We’re wrapping up our September Think Labs with woodworking in Space 8. In Tinkering with Tools, participants ages 4–7 hammer down the basics of woodworking by tinkering with pull saws, hammers and hand drills.

Ready to saw, sand and drill? Join us for Woodworking! Learn effective and safe use of power tools in this super cool Think Lab for ages eight and up. The best part? You get to make (and keep!) your very own wooden keepsake.

Touring Texas: Big Bend National Park, 9 am–12 pm, ages 0–3
Our “tour” of Texas concludes with an imaginary pit stop at Big Bend National Park! Explore the desert terrain, play in our bird seed sensory bin and create beautiful Texas Bluebonnets with the tips of your fingers.

Community Night, 4–8 pm, all ages
Every Wednesday, Thinkery stays open late so families can enjoy extended museum hours, exhibits and educational activities. There is always timely, themed programming scheduled—listen in on our 6 pm bilingual story time with Mrs. Purple Urple, or pop by Space 8 for a drop-in activity.
In addition to extended hours from 4–8 pm, admission during Community Night is by donation—meaning families are able to pay what they can. The suggested donation is just $1!

Fall on the Farm: Falling Leaves, 9–10 am, ages 0–3

Join us in Kitchen Lab as we explore the culinary world of wizards! We’ll mix up some tasty buttery brews to pair with chocolate-y soup and chocolate frogs.
