What makes the American Precision Museum a special place for kids? Here, we bring together the science, technology, engineering, math and design elements with historic and present-day relevance. We don’t say it like that to the kids, though. To them, we ask an essential question, like “How do make machines move the way we want them to,” then examine machines from the 1840s, make a battery-powered car, or program Sphero robots. Or we examine repeatability: “What’s the BEST way to draw a circle? (Trick question!) Or energy transfer: “Why is a pulley & lineshaft system like a circuit?” Our partnerships enhance our expertise, and we bring a one-of-a-kind element to the equation.
