Virginia Discovery Museum Makers are 3-week mini drop-off series that take a deeper look at specific topics to help children ages 6 and older develop into strong, creative thinkers and prepare them to be the next generation of designers, entrepreneurs, innovators, and big thinkers in our city. Kids are creative by nature, and by supporting their curiosity, we are supporting their futures.
