August Calm Morning: Big Hero 6 STEM Workshop

August Calm Morning: Big Hero 6 STEM Workshop

Join us for sensory-friendly gallery exploration and a family workshop inspired by the accommodative screening of Big Hero 6 (2014).

Calm Morning is a free program with the purchase of general admission. Museum admission for children ages 17 and under is always free. 

We invite visitors to our Calm Morning program on Saturday, August 26, from 9am to 1pm, with a focus on STEM, inspired by the film Big Hero 6 (2014). ASL interpretation will be provided. 

9–10am | Early Gallery Access 
Explore the Inventing Worlds and Characters: Animation and  Effects  galleries in our Stories of Cinema exhibition, on Level 3, where sound and lighting adjustments will be made for a more sensory-friendly viewing experience. 
10–11am | Family Workshop 
Visit the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level for a family workshop inspired by themes of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) explored in the film Big Hero 6 (2014).  The main character, Hiro Hamada, tries to foil a dangerous conspiracy with the help of his late brother’s robot creation, the lovable, inflatable Baymax. Hiro teams up with his friends using his skills in STEM to become superheroes. In this workshop, families will create their own robot!  

In addition to the Calm Morning program, we encourage visitors to attend our accommodative, open-caption screening of Big Hero 6 at 11am in the Ted Mann Theater. The screening is part of our weekly Family Matinees  film series. A separate admission ticket is required. 
The Shirley Temple Education Studio will remain open during the screening as a space for relaxation and continued art making until 1pm.
