  • What do skyscrapers, robots, and propeller-driven racers all have in common? Head over to the Delaware Children's Museum this month to find out as kids will explore the science behind building, architecture, engineering, and robotics with hands-on programs.
    Saturday, Feb. 9 through Feb. 25, children can put on their hard hats, lace up their work boots, and throw on their construction vests as they design, plan, and build in the DCM's "Block Party."
    Wood and foam blocks, plastic tubes, and other architectural materials of all sizes and shapes will be on hand so they can design and build the city of their dreams. Or they can build a super fort, a rocket ship, a magical castle, a towering throne and more!
    In the February edition of the DCM's monthly science-careers series, children can explore the science of engineering in "Try Science: Be an Engineer," on this Saturday and Sunday. Activities include designing a collaborative, marble roller coaster, constructing a propeller-driven zip line racer, and creating structures out of a variety of materials to test their strength.
    On Feb. 16, join in on the fun and learning in the DCM's new "Robotics Lab" series, led by high school students in The Charter School of Wilmington's "Science Ambassadors" program. Children can tinker with robotic creations, discover how they work, and try their hand at creating their own mini working robot!
    Just in time for a fun and kid-free Valentine's date night, parents can sign their kids up for the DCM's "Play Date" on Feb. 15. Parents will love three hours to themselves to have a special Valentine's date night out on the town.
    And the kids will love having three hours of the Museum to themselves, with special programs and treats designed just for them (including a dance party and a Hot Chocolate Bar).
    Registration is required for this event, as space will be limited.
