Little Sparks: Behind the Wheel

$ 20.00

November 16 | 11:00pm-1:00pm

What makes a car a car? Is it alive? Does it have a heartbeat? While it may seem that our cars are alive, they in fact only work because of the system of parts that help the car move. This workshop explores the basic mechanics of cars, and introduces students to the different parts of the car. By looking back at some of the earliest cars to modern day production lines, students not only learn the parts of the car, but also how cars, and their parts, have changed over time. 

On Saturday, November 16, from 11:00am to 1:00pm, the Petersen Automotive Museum will be hosting a workshop that explores the parts of the car targeting children ages 5 to 8 years old. This is the inaugural session of our Little Sparks series of programs for early education.

Registration is limited and tickets are non-refundable. Museum admission is required and is included in the cost of the workshop.
