Tech Fest – Family Engineering and Tech Fair at The Works Museum

If you’ve never been to the Works Museum, next Saturday would be a great time to go. If you HAVE been to the Works Museum then you know how fun it is.  It’s one our favorite places to go for indoor fun.  They have so many great hands-on learning stations and activities and it’s the type of place where adults can have just as much fun as the kids.
