Gizmo Factory closing on January 19

vintage-brass-microscope-904873-mThe popular Gizmo Factory inside the Clay Center in Charleston, WV will be open just for four days more before it closes to give way to the construction of the STEAMworks exhibit that will open on March 22.

The Gizmo Factory features different interactive exhibits that let visitors make their own music using a laser harp, program a water fountain, direct their own films, and build roller coasters. Though it is closing, individual exhibits will still be displayed around the Clay Center in batches on rotation.

STEAMworks, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, will bring together the arts and sciences through original and traveling exhibits. The first exhibit will be RiverWorks Discovery: A Journey of Imagination and Exploration on America’s Waterways.

The Gizmo Factory will be open until Sunday, January 19, 2014. It is open from 10 am to 5 pm Wednesday to Saturday, and 12 noon to 5 pm on Sunday. Admission to the exhibit is included in the gallery admission of $7.50 for adults and $6 for children.
