The Ultimate Recycling Machine at Pretend City

June 30th – August 15th | Summer Exhibit available for play during operational hours, located in The Traveling Exhibit space.

Grab your hard hats and join Pretend City this summer for the Ultimate Recycling Machine, an immersive hands-on experience that combines engineering, collaboration, imagination, and creativity.

Using a variety of recycled materials, work together to innovate new solutions to the City’s recycling needs. From drawing up plans to actively building structures, dive into early STEM concepts as you combine tube structures, zip lines, pulleys, pendulums, and more to build the ultimate recycling machine.

Grown-ups and children alike can freely engage with the materials. You will be amazed by how much creativity, tenacity and teamwork emerge from this simple set-up!
