How Things Work, the newest exhibit at the Belton Area Museum Association, is an exploration of simple and complex machines.
In the exhibit, discover the science behind everyday objects and machines in this hands-on, minds-on exhibit.
Through fun, first-hand investigation, you’ll find out how mechanisms work. See how wheels, inclined planes, wedges, screws, pulleys and cogs make construction easier.
Build a bridge, create a toy with a 3-d printer, and make a maze using everyday items.
You can sew on a simple Singer Sewing Machine, shuck corn, weave cloth, and use other early 19th Century inventions.
Thanks to sponsors Earth Materials Grading, City of Belton HTAX, and Anderson County ATAX, the event and exhibit are free to the public. The museum is open for visitors Wednesday – Friday, 9 am to 2 pm, and Saturday 10 am – noon. Or, call BAMA Executive Director Abigail Burden at 864-338-7400 to arrange a group tour.
