Community Build with Recycled Cardboard: kids will have the chance to learn about creative repurposing while they partake in a community build of scale models of the Museum using recycled cardboard and 3D printed connectors led by 3Dux/Design. Bring your own single ply cardboard or use the supply provided by The Junkluggers. Head to the Celebration Courtyard to participate in the build!

Recycling Drive: participate in a used textile drive led by Bay State Textiles to prevent valuable materials from being thrown away and negatively impacting the environment. Start saving your used textiles now and bring them to the event to recycle on Bay State Textile’s truck, which will be stationed outside the Museum.
