Family Design Day: Housing Mythical Creatures

October 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

| $10

Where do unicorns live? Do dragons ever need a place to sleep? What do fairies’ houses look like? Come to BSA Space and answer these pressing questions for yourself.

Canstruction 2017 is the inspiration for this day of design. This year the exhibition, made of canned good sculptures, has a fantastical theme:  “Fairy Tales, Folklore, and Mythical Creatures.” After a tour of the exhibition, participants will design their own habitat for a mystical creature using recycled materials.

Canstruction is a charitable competition and exhibition in which teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors imagine, create, and display colossal sculptures made of canned goods—all for a good cause. Materials from Canstruction are donated to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children will be required. Please register both children and adults.
