Virginia Discovery Museum Makers are 2-hour drop-off programs that take place after school and take a deeper look at specific topics to help children ages 5 and older develop their interests and challenge them to become strong, creative thinkers. Kids are curious by nature, and by supporting that curiosity, we support their futures as the next generation of designers, entrepreneurs, innovators, and big thinkers in our community.
